Upcoming FDA FSMA Rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods

The process of finalizing new food safety rules by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is underway. The accent of these upcoming FDA FSMA rules on the sanitary transportation of human and animal foods is the ways by which scientific and safe transportation and logistics involved in food transportation can be bettered. The FDA is required to establish rules for improving, auditing and enforcing new rules relating to food transportation. Congressional instructions have been issued for ensuring the establishment of these rules.

These are the aspects of food transportation that come under the ambit of these new FSMA Rules:

-       Foods not completely enclosed by a container

-       Preventing and reducing adulteration and risk

-       Training and certification of personnel for this purpose

-       Food inspection and collection of data

-       Maintaining compliance and reporting about its evidence.

Get trained on how to do this right

Since the FDA FSMA Rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods apply to organizations that work in food transportation; these organizations have to ensure proper adherence to these rules. To do this, they need to first understand the rules and also know what it takes implement them. A seminar being organized by GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional trainings for all the areas of regulatory compliance will offer this learning.

John Ryan, President, TransCert, QualityInFoodSafety, RyanSystems, is the Director of this two-day seminar. He will offer understanding and insights into the way the new Rules from the FDA apply to players involved in the transportation of human and animal foods.

The Director will also impart complete understanding of the ways by which to establish the right temperature monitoring, sanitation, container test and traceability, training and data reporting procedures and review the same. This seminar will also offer an understanding of the legal requirements of food transportation and how to develop a company plan that meets the expectations and requirements of both its customers and the FDA.
