FSPCA Preventive Controls Qualified Individual Courses

FSPCA Preventive Controls Qualified Individual Courses

If you are exporting food to the U.S. and want to assure that your exports continue uninterruptedly you need to implement FSMA requirements into your Food Safety Management System.

Why it’s important to attend a PCQI course?

The FSMA regulation requires that certain activities must be implemented by a “Preventive Controls Qualified Individual” (PCQI) who has “successfully completed training in the development and application of risk-based preventive controls”.

The paved way to gain knowledge, understanding and skills for implementing FSMA requirements is to attend a PCQI course. The participants receive a certification of completion as Preventive Controls Qualified Individuals (PCQI). Our courses are delivered by FSPCA qualified trainers in several languages and locations throughout Europe.
