The most common violations of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) are failing to develop a foreign supplier verification program (FSVP) and not identifying hazards that require a control, according to FDA audits analyzed by Registrar Corp. These violations show that the U.S. food industry is falling below expected standards, said Coley Anderson, industry and government relations director, Registrar Corp. In this podcast Coley discusses FSMA audit violations and how food brands can better comply with the law with Natural Product INSIDER’s editor-in-chief Sandy Almendarez. They cover:
- The importance in the difference between HACCP (hazard analysis and critical control points) and HARPC (hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls)
- The training and knowledge required for a preventive controls qualified individual (PCQI)
- Why importers are just as liable for FSMA regulations as U.S.-based importers.
Anderson will be speaking at the SupplySide West Workshop: FSMA and Import Requirements for Food and Supplement Brands on Wednesday, Oct. 16, 2019 at 9 a.m. to noon. This session is underwritten by Venable.
