Take Heed: Implementation of FSMA Picks up Steam

After substantial delay, it appears that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is working toward more complete implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). In January 2013, FDA released two long overdue draft regulations required by FSMA:

• Current Good Manufacturing Practice and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food

• Standards for Growing, Harvesting, Packing and Holding of Produce for Human Consumption

Those rules embody a significant portion of the framework by which FDA intends to transform its focus to preventing, rather than reacting to, food borne illnesses by closing gaps in food production and manufacturing practices that are thought to be a cause of food-related illness.

Those proposed rules may significantly impact your business. Therefore, food manufacturers, processors and producers take heed. You should review, analyze and assess how those rules will impact your business and, learn how to comply with the latest FSMA regulations.

How Can Cosmos Help?

Long-anticipated proposed rules have begun flowing from the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). What do they mean for your business? Get expert answers from the expert on Food Safety, and President of Cosmos Consultants, Farook Taufiq, at this exclusive thought leadership seminar.

Mr. Taufiq will start with an overview of the current state of the FSMA, expected next steps, and their impacts. Then he’ll guide attendees through an in-depth look at the latest requirements for food safety plans – what to document, how to verify that appropriate safety steps are being followed, and how to continuously monitor safety practices.

He will also provide input on HACCP, Good Manufacturing Practices, Accountability and Recall procedures.

Mr. Taufiq will also be available to conduct Quality Assurance Audits and Plant Sanitation Inspections to prepare the plant for actual FDA Inspection and Audit.
