Hello everyone,

 

  I keep reading through the new FSMA requirements and I'm a little confused.  As a distribution facility that does not own any of the products we store, are we still required to have a PCQI?  We do not alter the products we store in any way, just a simple pallet in / pallet out operation.

 

Thanks

I forgot to mention that we are already SQF Level 2 certified.

Hi xylough/Greg,

 

Nice to hear from you again.!

 

Thks for the warehouse document although it looks slightly old (2013) in this interpretive saga.

 

I deduce from Pg35/45/linked thread that the answer to the OP is most likely Yes.

Yes, you are required to have a PCQI on staff because you handle food products (even if they are palleted and never get opened, etc) Great that your company is SQF Code Level II certified - be sure to look up the comparison that is available on the www.sqfi.com website as many of the requirement for FSMA are met by being SQF Level II, however there will be some gaps that you'll need to fill in.
