Gap Assessment

FSMA compliance gap assessments from SGS – assess your level of compliance with FSMA rules.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is considered to be the most sweeping reform of US food safety laws in more than 70 years. Unlike previous food safety regulations, FSMA focuses on preventing contamination and requires organizations in the food industry to ensure safe practices throughout the supply chain. Our FSMA gap assessments will help importers and suppliers prepare for full compliance with US FDA regulations. We offer the following gap assessment services:

Gap assessment for primary regulations:

  • Preventive Controls for Human Food (21 CFR part 117)
  • Preventive Controls for Animal Food (21 CFR part 507)
  • Produce Safety (21 CFR part 112)
  • Intentional adulteration (21 CFR part 121)
  • FSVP (Sub-part L)
