FSMA Preventive Controls Qualified Individual Training

Sidebar Image

The Current Good Manufacturing Practices, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human and Animal Food regulation are intended to ensure safe manufacturing/processing, packing and holding of food products for human and animal consumption in the United States. The regulation requires that certain activities must be completed by a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) who has “successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls”. PC Human and PC Animal Food courses developed by the FSPCA are the “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA.

Successfully completing these courses is one way to meet the requirements for a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI). These courses are taught by Lead Instructors trained by the FSPCA, who have been instructed on how to teach the FDA-recognized standardized curriculum.

Preventive Controls & HACCP Combination Course

Course Description Eurofins has taken our two most popular courses and combined them into one offering; the FDA's Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) and the HACCP Training for Food Processors, which is recognized by the International HACCP Alliance.  The foundation of the course is the PCQI training course, with additional time in groups working on building the process preventive controls (HACCP) portion of the food safety plan as well as key components of building a HACCP program. This course will meet the requirements for the standardized curriculum training requirements under Title 21 Code of Federal Regulations Part 117 (21 CFR 117) for the Preventive Control Qualified Individual (PCQI) who conducts certain Food Safety Plan activities.
