The compliance date of January 2026 for FDA's Final Food Traceability Rule will be here in a few short years. Understanding the rule and, more importantly, developing a plan to comply are critical, and companies need to get started on these activities now. Despite the urgency, however, many food companies are wrestling with how to get started; what digital technologies, if any, they should use; how they can comply in a low-labor-model way; and how to do so in a manner that achieves a return on investment (ROI).
This session will provide a needed overview of these important factors, which must be addressed to go beyond mere regulatory compliance and create a safer, smarter, and more sustainable food system that benefits food producers, consumers, and the planet.
From this webinar, you will learn:
- An invaluable understanding of Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Rule 204 from the architect of the Rule, Frank Yiannas, which will demystify its nuances and progress
- How ambient Internet of Things (IoT) can revolutionize the food supply chain, with an emphasis on cost effectiveness, real-time visibility applications, automation, and ROI
- The relationship between ambient IoT and RFID
- The forthcoming ambient IoT standards that will be part of Bluetooth, 5G, and Wi-Fi
- How to grasp the prospects of ambient IoT in enhancing food safety, making it essential for those interested in pioneering advancements in supply chain management
- Frank Yiannas’ perspective on how the compliance paradigm is changing with the rollout of FSMA 204 and new technology standards
