Regulations for thermally processed low acid and acidified foods packaged in hermetically sealed containers (21 CFR 108, 113, and 114) are designed to prevent public health problems from commercially canned foods. The regulations require that operators of processing and packaging systems and container closure inspectors be under the operating supervision of a person who has attended and successfully completed appropriate instruction prescribed by FDA. Regulations for thermally processed meat and poultry products (9 CFR 318.300 and 381.300) and thermally processed low acid animal foods (21 CFR 507 and 508) include similar training requirements.

Better Process Control Schools (BPCS) provide practical applications of principles set forth in the regulations and satisfy the training requirements of both FDA and USDA.

Washington State University is approved by the FDA to offer these schools which satisfy the FDA, USDA, and State education requirements for canned low acid and acidified foods. WSU offers a two-day course for processors of acidified foods in glass containers as well as the four-day schools which covers all process systems and all types of containers and closures.
