Product Description

Prepare Your Organization for Current and Future Regulatory Requirements of FSMA

When President Obama signed the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and brought it into effect, it was supposed to launch Food and Drug Safety Administration (FDA) to write implementation and enforcement rules for the act within a time frame of eighteen months. Three and a half years later, there are no finalized rules yet. Food Industry is, however, waiting to see what’s to happen and some companies are proceeding with their job ahead.

If you are anywhere related to growing, importing, shipping, sending or receiving human or animal food/supplements/ingredients in the United States, it is definitely time for you to catch up and see what is going on. Tier one companies in US are driving changes down the supply chain and there are rumors of FDA raids, shutdowns and enforcement activities everywhere. As the FDA links its powers with Customs and Border protection, homeland security and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) – importers can definitely feel the heat.

In this session, Dr. John Ryan, PhD will review how FSMA is impacting the food supply chain. It is necessary for you to be updated on current status of FSMA development, as your dedication to building safe quality products will definitely benefit your company positioning.
