Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI)

Overview

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the first major update of federal food safety laws since 1938. FSMA gives the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) broad new powers to prevent food safety problems, detect and respond to food safety issues, and improve the safety of imported foods.  All food facilities must establish and implement a Food Safety Plan that includes an analysis of hazards and risk-based preventive controls.

A Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) is required to prepare and oversee the implementation of the facility’s Food Safety Plan in compliance with FSMA requirements.
