Join the US Commercial Service / North Dakota staff and learn about online tools that you can use in-house to do your own market research. During this half-day seminar, you receive a workbook and will begin doing real research to classify your products, research top countries for your industry, find trade events, find buyers, and identify other unexpected hurdles while exporting using tools more sophisticated than an online search engine, while still free and easy. Also hear from companies experienced in international market research and exporting. For questions, email Heather Ranck at email@example.com, or call 701-239-5080.

The Impact Dakota LEAN Enterprise Certification Program (LECP) helps businesses achieve higher profitability by building internal capability and capacity to improve QUALITY, COST, and DELIVERY.

One of the most significant new rules is the Preventive Controls for Human Food rule. This rule (mandated by the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)) states that every human food manufacturer, except for the very smallest who will have modified requirements, must have somebody on staff who has completed a Preventive Controls for Human Food class.
This is a three-day class that can only be taught by certified Preventive Controls Lead Trainers. Successful completion of the class certifies the graduate as a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI). Only a PCQI can prepare the REQUIRED facility Food Safety Plan and provide ongoing verification of the Plan. PCQI training requires a background in and/or significant knowledge of food safety for the attendees. This rule of the FSMA can be found here.
