Product Description

Learn the Key Elements and Procedures to Conform to FSMA Proposed Rule on Transportation of Human and Animal Food.

The FDA’s proposed rule would require those who transport food to use sanitary transportation practices to ensure the safety of food. The proposed rule, which is required by the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), would help maintain the safety of both human and animal food during transportation by establishing criteria like training and record keeping, conditions and practices for transporting food in sanitary condition.

Join this session by expert speaker Dr. Benjamin Miller to get introduced to the key elements of the proposed FDA rule that outlines all the activities necessary to conform to the proposed rules. There will be discussion on the different segments of the supply chain, focusing on varying responsibilities among transport companies, shippers and product receivers in the food supply chain.

Session Highlights:

This presentation will draw on the speaker’s vast regulatory experience and cover the following topics that are established under the proposed rule.

  • Vehicles and transportation equipment: The design and maintenance of vehicles and transportation equipment to ensure that it does not cause the food that it transports to become contaminated.
  • Transportation operations: The measures taken during transportation to ensure food is not contaminated, such as adequate temperature controls and separation of food from non-food items in the same load.
  • Information exchange: Procedures for exchange of information about prior cargos, cleaning of transportation equipment, and temperature control between the shipper, carrier, and receiver, as appropriate to the situation. For example, a carrier transporting bulk liquid non-dairy foods would want to ensure that vehicles that have previously hauled milk will not introduce allergens into non-dairy foods through cross contact.
  • Training: Training of carrier personnel in sanitary transportation practices and documentation of the training.
  • Records: Maintenance of written procedures and records by carriers and shippers related to transportation equipment cleaning, prior cargos, and temperature control.
  • Waivers: Procedures by which the FDA will waive any of these requirements if it determines that the waiver will not result in the transportation of food under conditions that would be unsafe for human or animal health and that it is in the public interest.
