Course "Prepare Your Company to Comply with the New FDA FSMA Rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.
Transportation and Logistics food transportation food safety rules have been finalized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under congressional instructions, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires the FDA to establish rules to improve, audit and enforce new food safety transportation rules. The rules provide a significant focus on foods not completely enclosed by a container, risk reducing adulteration prevention, personnel training and certification, inspection and data collection, maintenance and reporting that provides evidence of compliance.
These final food transportation rules were enacted on April 6, 2016. which means that perishable food shippers, carriers, receivers and maintenance operations are late to develop and implement risk reducing preventive food handling, load and un-load, distribution and transportation improvements.
Why should you attend:
In this two-day workshop conference, you will learn the legal requirements, how to develop a company plan that meets FDA and your customer requirements. You will review and learn how to establish appropriate temperature monitoring, sanitation, container test and traceability, training and data reporting procedures.
New low-cost GPS enabled traceability and temperature monitoring technology, EPA approved container sanitizers, washout technologies, temperature maintenance equipment, and food residue and bio-contaminant testing will be presented.
The session will also review the future of transportation food safety in light of new and evolving technologies. References to upcoming technology providers and Internet links to detailed information will be provided.
