All food facilities registered with the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) must comply with the requirements under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) to develop and implement a Preventive Control Food Safety Plan that includes a Food Defense Plan. The plan must also include a hazard analysis, allergen analysis, factory profile, recall plan, supply chain controls, process preventive controls, sanitation preventive controls and other items. The plan must be reviewed and approved by a preventive controls qualified individual (PCQI) and it must be validated.
Many companies are having difficulty fulfilling these requirments.
The company’s responsibility under FSMA is to assure that the plan is implemented, verified and validated.
For most companies, the deadline for plan development and implementation has passed. This webinar will cover plan development of the preventive control food safety plan and the development of the food defense plan.
Areas Covered in the Session :
- CEOs, VP and Director Level Personnel in food companies impacted by FSMA
- Food Safety and Quality Team Members
- Quality System Personnel
- Operations and legal personnel
- Recall teams
