The FDA has released a revised draft Introduction and Appendix 1 to the multi-chapter draft guidance for industry titled “Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food: Draft Guidance for Industry” (PCHF Draft Guidance). The changes address comments received on the drafts made available in 2016 and provide additional context and information on current food safety hazards. The revised introduction includes an expanded glossary, three new sections on training, references, and resources. The second document is a revised draft of Appendix 1, which includes new sections, revisions to product categories, a discussion of hazards, an updated discussion on food allergen hazards, and citations to scientific and regulatory information. Both the draft Introduction and Appendix 1 are available for public comment.
