The IAOM Preventive Controls Qualified Individuals (PCQI) Training will be offered on May 9-11 in Kansas City, Missouri. The Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk‐based Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation (referred to as the Preventive Controls for Human Food regulation) is intended to ensure safe manufacturing/processing, packing and holding of food products for human consumption in the United States. The regulation requires that certain activities must be completed by a “preventive controls qualified individual.” This course, developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA), is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA; successfully completing this course is one way to meet the requirements for a “preventive controls qualified individual.”
Dr. Jeff Gwirtz, JAG Services, will be the lead instructor for the course, which offers a focus on food safety programs in a milling environment.
