FSMA Update: FDA Launches Web Page with Compliance Dates
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) introduced a new web page that consolidates the compliance dates for the Agency’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rules. The rules that include compliance dates, in the order they became final, are:
Preventive Controls for Human Food
Preventive Controls for Animal Food
Foreign Supplier Verification
These rules have staggered compliance dates, in part, based on the size of a business. FDA also has provided a graphic timeline that shows these staggered compliance dates by month and year.
There are no compliance dates for the Accredited Third-Party Certification rule since it is a voluntary program. However, as previously reported on this blog, FDA launched a website earlier this year where an organization can apply to be recognized as a Third-Party accreditation body.
