Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Resources Portal
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the most sweeping reform of United States food safety laws in more than 70 years, was signed into law on January 4, 2011. After a nearly four-year rulemaking process, seven major rules have been released. While some rules or select provisions of rules are already in effect, most rules or provisions will be enforced in the coming years as established by the FDA’s published compliance dates.
The resources provided here are meant to assist Western Growers’ members to start implementing applicable rules in their operations in preparation for the upcoming compliance dates. Please note these resources are not legal advice and do not ensure compliance with regulations.
The following are final rules that may impact Western Growers’ members depending on their size, commodities produced, type of operation, and activities conducted including the donation or sale of by-products for use as animal food.
We will continue to update this portal to ensure Western Growers’ members have access to the latest information on FSMA. In addition, we are developing resources and a comprehensive implementation guide that will be available here. Last updated Friday December 23, 2016.
