The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) gives the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authority to regulate food from farm to fork. This helps the FDA do a better job of protecting the public by strengthening the food safety system. FSMA regulations require every processing facility to have a trained resource person or “Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) who has completed a specialized training course such as this one that was developed by the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA). The PCQI oversees the implementation of the facility’s food safety plan and other key tasks. (See 21CFR117.180 (c) (1))
