BPCS training certifies supervisors of thermal processing systems, acidification, and container closure evaluation programs for low-acid and acidified foods (LACF/AF).These training courses must be approved by U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and FDA requires (21CFR 113 & 114) that each processor of low-acid or acidified foods for U.S. consumption must operate with a certified supervisor on hand at all times during processing. The topics of the training include 17 courses. OUC was approved by FDA from 2011, and the 5th training was operated in June 2014. Until now, the BPCS training center in OUC is the one and only approved center in Asia. (Article: Dong Ping; Photo: Du Yanan)
