Confused About What the FSMA Means to You in 2016?
Beginning next year, big changes are coming to those in the food industry as the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is implemented by the FDA. It's a whole new ball game that will change the face of just about every enterprise involved in food growing, transportation, processing, preparation, packaging and distribution.

How will This Affect You?
Some of the questions you may be asking yourself are:
  • What deadlines affect my business and when?
  • Are small businesses exempt from FSMA requirements?
  • What falls under the USDA?
  • I have a verified HACCP plan. Does this have to be upgraded to HARPC?
  • I am certified to a GFSI-approved scheme. Does my organization have to do anything else?
  • What reports must be filed withe FDA?
  • As an importer, do I have more liability under the FSMA?
  • I've heard that the FDA will aggressively enforce the new rules and conduct unannounced audits - Is this true?
