FDA Publishes Strategy for Implementing FSMA Rules.

Tuesday, May 6, 2014

(American Meat Institute)The FDA is sharing its strategy for implementing several new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rules in a new online document. The strategy document is intended to guide the next phase of FSMA implementation by outlining broadly the drivers of change in FDA's approach to food safety and the operational strategy for implementing that change, as mandated and empowered by FSMA. An appendix provides guiding principles for how the strategy can be implemented with respect to food and feed facilities, produce safety standards, and import oversight. The document is designed to guide the work of teams responsible for developing the specific strategies, capacity building, training, and operational plans needed to implement FSMA in these areas.  It also provides the basis for dialogue with FDA's government partners and other stakeholders concerning implementation of the FSMA rules.
