Preventive Controls, officially titled “Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food”
This rule applies to facilities and farms that manufacture, process, pack or hold human food.
- Based on an earlier law, food facilities must register with the Federal government
- Exemptions do apply to small operations conducting low risk activities
- UNH Cooperative Extension, along with our partners in state and across the region are still working to better understand this portion of the law. Please check back to this site periodically for updates.
