FSPCA Preventive Controls for Human Food Course (PCQI Training)
by Oregon State University Food Innovation Center
The Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk-based Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation (referred to as the Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation) is intended to ensure safe manufacturing/ processing, packing and holding of food products for human 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”. This course is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA; successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual.”
This 2.5-Day course is based on the curriculum developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA). This course will be taught by Lead Instructors, who have been trained by the FSPCA in how to teach the FDA-recognized curriculum.
Why Should You Attend this Training?
Will you be responsible for writing and/or overseeing your company’s food safety plan? Under the Preventive Controls for Human Food rule, the responsibilities of a Preventive Control Qualified Individual (PCQI) include: 1) preparation of the Food Safety Plan, 2) validation of the preventive controls, 3) records review, 4) reanalysis of the Food Safety Plan and other activities as appropriate to the food (see 21 Part 117.180 for more details).
The regulation requires that certain activities must be completed by a “preventive controls qualified individual.” This course, developed by FSPCA, is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA; successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual.”
