The FDA FSMA Rule on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods, effective April 6, 2016, impacted over 84,000 food shippers, carriers and receivers, who are still struggling to ensure full compliance with the rule. The final rules are significantly different from earlier published proposed food transportation rules, laws and guidance documents. The final rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods establish training requirements for all carrier personnel engaged in food transportation operations. Training certificates are required for these topics:
Self-reporting of compliance failures is required as are critical shipper-carrier agreements for data, records and reporting. It is also a requirement for food shippers to make carriers aware of these requirements.
Perishable food carrier operators must make distribution and transportation process improvements, develop and implement risk reducing preventive food handling, loading and un-loading procedures. Significant changes must be made to procedures currently employed for food transportation operations, personnel, vehicles, containers, trailers tools and equipment used in food transportation.
Join this session with expert speaker John Ryan, Ph.D., who will help all food carrier personnel engaged in transportation operations ensure compliance with the FDA FSMA Final Rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods. This is the first part of a three-part required training resulting from the finalization of new US FDA food transportation laws. All carrier transportation operations personnel are required to take this and the subsequent two training sessions.
