According the FDA regulations 21 CFR 108, 113, and 114 require that each processor of low-acid or acidified foods operate with a certified supervisor on hand at all times during processing. The Better Process Control School (BPCS) workshop online is a school designed for manufacturers of shelf stable, acidified and low-acid foods (including pet foods). This BPCS also meets U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) regulations 9 CFR 431 for shelf stable, thermally processed food products.
