Over 84,000 food shippers, carriers and receivers are impacted by the new FDA FSMA law. Foreign food exporters and U.S. food importers have less than six months for full compliance. This new law requires significant changes to procedures currently established for foreign food export transportation operations, personnel, vehicles, containers, trailers tools and equipment used in food transportation. Under the rules, the U.S. receiver now assumes the responsibilities of the shipper and must assure that foreign food exporters and carriers comply with FSMA transportation food safety laws. The rules cover all food moving on U.S. roads or by rail “food not completely enclosed by a container” or foods requiring temperature controls that travel by U.S. road or rail.
The new law was published on April 6, 2016, which mean there is little time left for perishable food shipper and carrier operations to develop and implement risk reducing preventive food handling, load and un-load operations and to make carrier, distribution and transportation process improvements. If your company imports food from foreign suppliers, you must protect your company by assuring that foreign loaders, shippers and carriers comply with FDA FSMA Rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods.
Attend this session by expert speaker Dr. John M. Ryan, which will hold significance for all the transportation operations personnel involved in the transportation of human and animal foods into the U.S. and from foreign food suppliers. After covering the basic rules, the impact of cross and contact contamination, allergen controls, hazards, theft, food fraud, mandatory training, security, spills, accidents and preventive concepts are briefly covered.
