Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law in 2011. Implementing the most comprehensive reform of this nation’s food safety system in more than 70 years, requires robust strategies. FDA has released Final Rules for the Preventive Controls for Human Food and Preventive Controls for Animal Food. Small processors are facing challenges, including understanding the nuances of the new regulations and FDA expectations. The FSMA emphasizes public-private partnership and the FDA has funded the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPC) to provide educational training and outreach to small processors. This session will discuss challenges and opportunities as well as the FSPC standardized training and outreach program designed to help implementation of FSMA.
