Are you searching for the original online PCQI food safety course for French food exports to the U.S.? 

ImEPIK offers a comprehensive online course for international professionals looking to export food products to the United States. Aside from USDA-regulated meat, poultry, and processed egg producers, all food imports from France and elsewhere must comply with the requirements established by the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The Act was signed in 2011 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to prevent food safety problems instead of reacting to outbreaks.

Although FSMA outlines a set of specific standards, the regulatory framework around food safety is frequently in flux. As France is a member of the European Union, many products are considered harmonized products. A harmonized product has the same standards for import across all E.U. countries. Some products, however, are non-harmonized. A non-harmonized product has different standards depending on the region in which it was produced. There are also products that are entirely ineligible, including lamb and mutton, equine products, and poultry meat products.

PCQI training is an essential step toward FSMA compliance for anyone seeking to export food products from France into the U.S. One of the FSMA’s seven rules is that manufacturers must implement “current good manufacturing practice, hazard analysis, and risk-based preventative controls for human food.” This rule establishes the standard of having a staff member who is a Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI). It is their duty to ensure food safety regulatory compliance.

FAQs

When we say the course is “100% Online”, we mean that it’s self-paced and does not require you to schedule a virtual classroom session or attend a webinar. You do the training on your time, whenever you want and from wherever you and your computer/tablet are located. Other PCQI offerings require scheduling Part 1 & 2 sessions to complete the course and receive a completion certificate. Ours is totally self-paced and allows you to avoid stringent scheduling or limited seating in virtual classrooms.

The FDA, not FSPCA, is the regulatory body that sets the standardized curriculum for the PCQI training requirements. The FSPCA is simply another training organization and the FDA does not require that you receive training from them. Our FDA recognized course has been recommended by FDA and independent auditors alike to help their clients comply with Food Safety Plan requirements.

You will automatically receive a certificate of completion when you are done with the course and there is no additional cost.

Yes! This course is designed using the FDA approved curriculum, but without the mind-numbing effect of sitting in a classroom lecture for hours on end. It is broken up into 10 modules that include voice-over-narration, animated videos, and interactive exercises complimented by an online study manual. By the end of the course, you will have completed practical situations that culminate with the development of a food safety plan.

Yes, once purchased, your login information remains active and you will continue to have access to all the material. Since our course is entirely online and self-paced, you also have the option to skip through for a refresher on only certain portions.

This course is a great alternative to an in-person course. The modules combined videos, a reference manual and the real-life scenarios that helped to break up the online training.

Excellent value in terms of educational content and cost. The course balanced regulation with actual implementation, and how both apply to all aspects of preventive controls and risk management.
