Hi Matteo,

 

I presume this is related to obtaining US-appropriate (local) approval for a specific canning process ?

 

In USA afaik (not in USA myself) the approval is required to be carried out/verified by a "competent authority" based on evaluation of filled-in standard forms  (and maybe basic procedures) which are downloadable from the FDA website. IIRC some examples of completed forms are also available.

 

I would anticipate you are going to need some expert technical assistance.

Thank you Charles,

Were I can find the standard form???

The Institute for Therma Process Specialists made a Protocol about the procedure, but I need an example of final report.

Here are the submission forms for a low acid canned foods filing and guidance on how to fill them out.

 

https://www.fda.gov/...F/ucm309376.htm

 

If you need a process authority to help prepare the forms and guide you through the process, I highly recommend contacting Covance (Covance.com), great customer service and very knowledgeable.

Hi Matt,

 

I suggest that the reference in 3F's post has some useful links in appendix of download.

 

The organization noted yr post 4 include a report template in their procedural document ? ie -

 

Attached File  IFTPS guidelines.pdf   1.06MB   3 downloads

(see appendices)

 

These documents may also be of some peripheral interest -

 

Attached File  AIOE, validating salmonella reduction, other pathogens in heat processed low moisture foods,2012.pdf   4.54MB   3 downloads

Attached File  temperature and heat distribution protocol in agitating retorts.pdf   228.81KB   3 downloads

 

My guess is that the last line of my post 2 may be the easiest approach. just for an example -
