FoodChain ID Certification Solutions recommends that one or more persons from a food operation subject to FSMA Preventive Controls regulation receive FDA-recognized Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) training.

While GFSI-recognized certification programs each have specific food safety training requirements for individuals developing and implementing a site’s food safety management system, the training is not specific to the unique requirements of FSMA regulation.

ACET Global Consulting associates are Lead Instructors for Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA) courses, which are courses developed in partnership with the FDA to satisfy training requirements of new U.S. food regulations.

Through FoodChain ID Certification Solutions, ACET Global Consulting offers instruction in the following FSPCA courses:

  • Preventive Controls for Human Food
  • Preventive Controls for Animal Food
  • Foreign Supplier Verification Program

ACET Global Consulting associates have expertise developing, implementing and maintaining HACCP-based food safety management systems across industry sectors. Through FoodChain ID Certification Solutions, ACET consultants are readily available to conduct gap assessments paired with education and training. This service can help your company quickly identify gaps and correct deficiencies in your food safety program when seeking certification to a GFSI-recognized scheme.


ACET associates also provide training and consultation in food defense, environmental monitoring and food labelling to support regulatory compliance and expanded requirements in these areas across new versions of GFSI-benchmarked standards.  For food defense, ACET Global Consulting proudly partners with the Global Food Defense Institute (GFDI) to provide a broad range of consultation, education and training services to help sites assess security threats, identify vulnerable areas and implement effective mitigation measures to protect products against terrorism, crime, natural disasters, and other potential threats.
