Event Description

Understand Upcoming US FDA Rules for the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods

Transportation and Logistics food transportation food safety rules are currently being finalized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under congressional instructions, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires the FDA to audit, enforce and improve new rules of food transportation.

These rules provide a significant focus on:

  • Foods not completely enclosed by a container;
  • Risk reducing adulteration prevention;
  • Personnel training and certification;
  • Inspection and data collection; and
  • Maintenance and reporting that provides evidence of compliance.

These rules are to be expected in late 2015, which mean there is little time left for perishable food carriers, shippers, receivers and maintenance operations to develop and implement risk reducing preventive food handling, load and un-load, as well as make distribution and transportation improvements.

Join this session by expert speaker Dr. John M. Ryan to get the information and knowledge to comply with FSMA sanitary food transportation rules and get familiar with standards, technology and procedures. Get armed with the knowledge needed to build a basic plan and learn the difference between prevention and corrective action. The session will also explain the basics of new food transportation rules and explain how to depend on the inputs from your employees. You will know how to keep sanitation and temperature monitoring under control in your facility. Plus, get references for training, assessment and audits, as well as a free paper upon request.
