Preparing To Meet The Requirements Of The Food Safety Modernization Act

Source: Mettler-Toledo Product Inspection

The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2011 places the responsibility for food safety squarely on food producers, with requirements that will come into force as finalized and funded. Food processors and manufacturers should begin now to prepare their operations to meet these requirements, rather than waiting for them to come into full force. This paper recommends actions that food processors can take now to prepare for the full implementation of the law, including reviewing the effectiveness of their existing product inspection systems and their ability to provide the reporting data FSMA requires.

Introduction

With the signing into law in January 2011 of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the federal government has mandated legal requirements affecting the production and distribution of food products for companies throughout the food supply chain. These requirements will affect companies from food growers through processors and manufacturers to those that deliver food products to consumers. This paper addresses those requirements affecting food processors and manufacturers.

What will these new requirements mean for food processors and manufacturers? How will they change the way your company works? How can you best prepare for the new FDA inspections?
