UNPA announces in-house PCQI training for food and supplement companies after completion of in-house PCQI training for Indena
MILAN, Italy (July 17, 2017) — The United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA) has begun providing onsite Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PCQI) training for food and dietary supplement companies after the successful completion of a PCQI training session for UNPA member Indena at its corporate headquarters in Milan, Italy.
In addition to upcoming UNPA PCQI training sessions in Salt Lake City, July 17-19, and in Boulder, Colo., Aug. 16-18, UNPA’s Larisa Pavlick, VP, Global Regulatory & Compliance, who is a former Food and Drug Administration (FDA) investigator, leads a team of highly experienced PCQI Lead Instructors that are available to provide in-house training for food and supplement companies that are required to have a PCQI as part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Most companies producing organic and natural foods, dietary supplements and dietary ingredients face a September 2017 compliance date to have a PCQI on staff.
In early July, UNPA completed a PCQI training for Indena, a leading ingredient supplier, in Milan, Italy, taught by Pavlick. Indena had 12 employees from four locations present for the training. All 12 team members successfully completed the 20-hour (2.5 day) standardized curriculum. In addition, five observers, including members of the Indena senior management team, attended the training.
