Sanitary Food Transportation Rules and Complying with the Latest FDA Guidelines on FSMA

Transportation and logistics food transportation 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 establish rules to improve, audit and enforce new food transportation rules. The 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, maintenance and reporting that provides evidence of compliance.

These final food transportation rules were published on April 6, 2016. This means large carriers who have not completely implemented a system are now operating illegally. Large perishable food shippers, carriers, receivers, logistics and maintenance operations have no time left to develop and implement risk reducing preventive food handling, load and un-load, distribution and transportation improvements. Small carriers have even lesser time left for full compliance but customers of small carriers are now pressuring these small carriers for training and other mandatory certification documents.

Join this webinar by expert speaker Dr. John M. Ryan where he will help you with FSMA sanitary food transportation rules. By attending the event, you will learn the difference between corrective action and prevention and the basics that are involved in the new food transportation rules. You will also get a fair idea to get sanitation and temperature monitoring under control. Additionally, you’ll be provided with references for training, assessment and audits.
