When will the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) finally issue rules that form the core of the heralded Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)? A Federal Court seeks to change that dynamic, ordering the FDA to promulgate final rules by June 30, 2015.
The report to Congress on Building Capacity to Implement the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA) serves as a valuable overview of how FDA intends to shift the food safety paradigm, from reacting to food safety problems after they occur to preventing contamination and foodborne illness before they happen.
Food producers operate in an environment of ever-increasing regulation and complexity, but as a senior manager, you just have to make sure that your company follows the rules and meets the new FSMA standards. Do that and you will have nothing else to worry about.
