The FDA’s Preventive Control Rule went into effect November 16, 2015, as part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
This new rule makes current Good Manufacturing Practices mandatory and establishes new standards for Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls for human food. Some companies will need to be in compliance as soon as September 19, 2016, and qualified facilities must already retain documentation to support their status.
Are you FSMA ready? Whether you think you are or not, Western Growers urges members to register and participate in the February Lunch and Learn Webinar on the Preventive Control Rule.
Since its formal adoption, Western Growers has been working to develop resources to assist members with readying their businesses for FSMA implementation. During the webinar, we will discuss key provisions in the Preventive Controls Rule and share resources Western Growers is developing to assist you with the implementation of this rule.
