Event description

Description

The Food Safety Modernization Act has introduced some of the most sweeping reforms to U.S. food safety laws in more than 70 years. It is mandated that all FDA regulated manufacturers in the United States and any foreign entity who produces food to be consumed within the US must comply to applicable final rules. This seminar offers a 360 degree view of food safety practices from a FSMA-centered approach. The courses will highlight the basics of food safety with an emphasis on compliance. The seminar will provide the tools needed to align your company’s governance, risk management, and compliance programs with new FDA regulations.

Why Should You Attend?

Attendees of the seminar are treated to a two-day deep-dive into the Food Safety Modernization Act and the relevant tools for compliance necessary to ensure your facility meets regulatory requirements. Participants will be trained on building a program that is resilient and agile in the fast-paced environment of food manufacturing and distribution. Sessions in the course will include understanding the basic elements of FSMA, building a framework of compliance using GRC capability tools, making the connection between HACCP and FSMA, and organizational improvement of documentation to ensure audit readiness. In addition, practical training segments will allow participants to learn how to identify and assess risks, calculate the applicable risk tolerances, and offer other tips and tools to apply risk management principles within an organization.

Topic Background:

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) grants sweeping new powers to the FDA that must be addressed an organization’s compliance program. FDA now has a legislative mandate that requires comprehensive, science-based preventive controls across the food supply industry. FSMA mandates that all processing facilities implement preventive controls that are appropriate for their operations. FDA has previously required HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) for seafood and juice processors, as has USDA for meat and poultry, but FSMA makes HACCP-type preventive controls the norm in all food processing facilities. This new law is historic, because for the first time in more than 70 years, a significant overhaul of the statutory tool kit for combatting food-borne illness has been established. Organizations must understand how these changes affect the way they need to address compliance requirements around food safety.
