The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Preventive Controls for Human Food (PCHF) rule takes a preventive approach to food safety. The first requirement of the PCHF rule is a documented hazard analysis. The FSMA PCHF rule requires that certain aspects of the food safety program be performed or supervised by a preventive controls qualified individual (PCQI). A PCQI is an individual who has successfully completed adequate training or is otherwise qualified through job experience to develop and implement a food safety plan. A PCQI manages important aspects of the food safety program and ensures that preventive controls are effective and proper records are maintained. This article describes the roles and responsibilities of a PCQI.
