Understanding the US Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)
This document introduces the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) and how its proposals are likely to impact the food industry. The key provisions are detailed and compared against current industry-standard GFSI-recognized schemes.
Advice is provided on how to prepare to meet the FSMA requirements, including a step-by-step process guide. This is further developed by a comparison with, and discussion around, Global Food Safety Initiative recognized schemes and the simpler move from these certifications to complete preparedness for FSMA compliance.
