The Better Process Control Schools (BPCS) program was instituted to meet the requirements of FDA’s regulations in 21 CFR 108, 113, and 114. These programs are meant to assure low-acid or acidified food producers are taking the necessary steps to prevent public health problems historically connected to these foods. Low-acid canned pet foods are regulated by the same regulations. Thermally processed meat and poultry products must comply with similar regulations and training requirements (9 CFR 318.300 and 381.300) under the authority of the USDA.
