6. Corrective Actions
The Agency proposes to require that facilities establish and implement written corrective action procedures that would be used if preventive controls are not properly implemented and take corrective actions in the event of an unanticipated problem.
The Agency proposes to require that facilities conduct certain verification activities, including:
* Validation of a subset of the preventive controls;
* Verification that monitoring is being conducted;
* Verification that appropriate decisions about corrective actions are being made; and
* Verification that the preventive controls are consistently implemented and are effectively and significantly minimizing or preventing the hazards that are reasonably likely to occur.
The Agency also proposes to require reanalysis of the food safety plan at least once every 3 years and more often when circumstances warrant.
8. Modified Requirements for a Facility Solely Engaged in the Storage of Packaged Animal Food That is Not Exposed to the Environment
Acting on the discretion provided to
* Establishing and implementing temperature controls;
* Monitoring the temperature controls;
* Taking appropriate corrective actions when there is a problem with temperature controls;
* Verifying that temperature controls are consistently implemented; and
* Establishing and maintaining the following records:
* Records documenting the monitoring of temperature controls;
* Records of corrective actions; and
* Records documenting verification activities.
The Agency requests comments on these proposed requirements.
9. Qualified Individual
The Agency proposes to establish qualification requirements for a "qualified individual," who would be required to do or oversee the preparation of the food safety plan, validation of preventive controls, review records for implementation and effectiveness of preventive controls and the appropriateness of corrective actions, and perform the reanalysis of a food safety plan. A "qualified individual" would be required to successfully complete training with a standardized curriculum or be otherwise qualified through job experience to develop and apply a food safety system. Job experience may qualify an individual to perform these functions if such experience has provided an individual with knowledge at least equivalent to that provided through the standardized curriculum.
10. List of Required Records
The Agency proposes to establish a list of records that would be required under proposed subpart C, including the written food safety plan and records documenting monitoring of preventive controls, corrective actions, verification, and applicable training for the qualified individual.
