Be a PCQI if you trade food with the US
SGS Academy is the first certification body to offer PCQI training course in Hong Kong. A FSPCA PCQI certificate will be issued by the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO).
PCQI means “Preventive Controls Qualified Individual”, a personal qualification to undertake preventive control tasks for human food under the requirements of FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (美國食品藥物管理局 食品安全現代化法案).
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is considered to be the most sweeping reform of US food safety laws in more than 70 years. Unlike previous food safety regulations, FSMA focuses on preventing contamination and requires organisations in the food industry to ensure safe practices throughout the supply chain.
If you trade food with the US, you probably have facilities that manufacture, process, pack or hold food for humans. In such case, FSMA applies to you and there should be a qualified PCQI to manage and implement a food safety plan according to "Preventive Controls for Human Food" section.
