Update your food safety and food defense program components affected by FSMA regulations to ensure compliance.
On January 4th, 2011 President Obama signed the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) which updates the Food, Drugs and Cosmetics Act of 1938, as well as other regulations related to food safety.
As a result, all FDA-registered US food manufacturing facilities as well as facilities located in foreign countries and exporting to the US will have to update their food safety and food defense programs to meet new FSMA requirements.
The final regulations related to hazard analysis and preventive controls, food defense, sanitary transport, and domestic and foreign supplier verification will be issued late 2015 and early 2016.
Most food firms will have about 12 months to prepare before the FDA will begin enforcing these regulations.
US manufacturing and distribution facilities: managers and other key personnel responsible for food safety and food defense (e.g., procurement, manufacturing, sanitation, maintenance, and quality assurance)
Importers: importers held accountable for the compliance status of imported food products and their foreign suppliers
Familiarity and experience with food safety regulations, including FSMA rules, will enhance learning experience and retention.
Course is subject to updates as final rules are released.
