On September, 2015, the long-awaited final FSMA rules were published by the FDA dealing with Preventive Controls for foods for both human beings and animals. These new rules in Subpart G explicitly state that there is a requirement to create and execute a supply chain program, which neatly establishes receiver liabilities – these liabilities are more attuned towards preventing any hazards from entering the supply chain. These newly established rules lay out the responsibilities of the receiver through 33 different sections, which lay down the compulsory role of the receiver and what he must do to ensure compliance, for domestic or imported foodstuffs.
The responsibilities of the receiver in the supply chain is to carefully select, qualify and manage the suppliers they use by verifying the validity of their documentation and ensure the implementation of the controls to reduce hazards in the supply chain. The new rules recognize the inherent need for receivers to ensure that the food material that they receive and continue to process are not just the supplier’s responsibility but, now, the receiver is liable as well – insofar as the receiver is obligated to ensure the correct application of hazard preventing controls.
Join this session with expert speaker Dr. John M. Ryan to learn all you need to know about the receiver’s liability for supplier preventive controls under the final FSMA Subpart G rule requirements.
From the rules, it is evident that under the final FSMA rule, the FDA is making receivers liable for supplier preventive control programs. Only suppliers clearly approved and qualified by you may now supply foods and ingredients to your operation. Supplier established hazard preventive controls have now become your hazard preventive controls.
In this session, our expert speaker shall discuss these new supply-chain-applied control rule requirements and explore some of the options open to receivers when it comes to assuring that their own documentation systems provide proof of rule compliance. You cannot afford to misunderstand these new responsibilities.

• Develop a system to collect appropriate supplier qualification and certification records
• Learn to risk rank your suppliers
• Eliminate low scoring suppliers to prove your own supplier control system
• Learn to qualify suppliers, materials, equipment and utilities
