Why Does My Team Need PCQI Training?
The FDA’s primary concern is that food facilities have one or more certified individuals on staff who hold the technical knowledge to make their food products and understand the processes to identify, evaluate, and control any associated risk. A PCQI is critical to a company’s overall food safety program. Most companies have multiple PCQI’s to ensure regulations are met and ensure all necessary Food Safety Plan paperwork is completed accurately on every shift.

The FDA will most likely want to hear from the PCQI if the agency ever has questions or concerns about its safety program or products’ adequacy. If a consumer ever claims harm by a company’s products, the PCQI will play a critical role in representing the organization, resolving the claim, and, if necessary, defending the company in a civil lawsuit. The goal is to prevent foodborne illnesses through the safe preparation of food products for human consumption in the United States. The FDA regulation requires food and beverage facilities to have at least one PCQI to lead the creation, application, and verification of risk-based preventative controls.
This is a great opportunity for companies to train their entire food safety team! Have your food safety team leader take the required FDA training for the role of Preventive Control Qualified Individual and provided his/ her support team with the necessary knowledge to support the PCQI and understand the Preventive Controls Human Food (PCHF) Rule language.
