In September 2015, the FDA published the final FSMA rules for the Preventive Controls for Human and Animal Foods. The newly published Subpart G rules recognize the inherent need for receivers to assure that the food they receive and process are not only the responsibility of the supplier but, now also make the receiver liable for supplier preventive controls. The new rule requirements include 33 different sections to establish what you as a food receiver “must” do to comply. As a supply chain member, it is important that you understand and comply with the new control requirements – so that you can minimize the risk of food safety hazards that may get you in trouble if they are present in the food products you produce.
In this webinar, industry expert Dr. John M. Ryan will teach you all you need to know about your liabilities as a receiver under the final FSMA Subpart G rule requirements. It is clear from the rules that the FDA is making receivers liable for supplier preventive control programs. This means that only suppliers clearly approved and qualified by you may now supply foods and ingredients to your operation – and that supplier established hazard preventive controls have now become your hazard preventive controls. Dr. Ryan will walk you through the new supply-chain-applied control rule requirements (for both U.S. and imported foods) and explore some of the options open to you as a receiver to assure that your documentation systems provide proof of rule compliance.
Make no mistake: Your responsibility as a receiver is to carefully select, qualify, certify, and manage your suppliers by validating their documentation and ensuring that they implement the necessary controls to reduce hazards in the supply chain. The new rules recognize the inherent need for you to ensure that the food material you receive and process is not just the supplier’s responsibility but yours as well – insofar as you are obligated (as a receiver) to ensure the correct application of hazard preventing controls.
After attending this session, you will understand the new supply-chain-applied control requirements. You will know how to develop a system to collect appropriate supplier qualification and certification records; risk rank your suppliers; eliminate low scoring suppliers, and qualify suppliers, materials, equipment and utilities.
