FSMA requires that all companies producing food (not currently under regulatory-required HACCP) have a written Food Safety Plan as well as a Preventative Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) to create, implement and oversee that Food Safety Plan.

This two-and-a-half day short course was designed by the Food Safety Preventative Controls Alliance (FSPCA), and is the FDA-recognized course for training food and beverage industry professionals seeking to become PCQI.
