FDA regulatory compliance firm Registrar Corp launched the FSMA Compliance Wizard, a free tool to help food facilities, importers, and farms determine their possible requirements under FDA's Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). FSMA imposes broad new requirements on manufacturers, importers, processors, packers, and distributors of food, including requirements for supplier monitoring, the implementation of food safety plans, and much more.
New requirements under FSMA involve many nuances depending on the size of a business, its functions, the types of food it handles and even its location. Most FSMA rules offer modified requirements and a longer compliance period for small and very small businesses (terms defined differently in each rule). For instance, facilities that handle dietary supplements may be exempt from most requirements under the Preventive Controls Rule, but may still be subject to requirements under the Foreign Supplier Verification Program. Facilities in countries with food safety systems officially recognized by FDA may also be subject to modified requirements.
To use Registrar Corp's FSMA Compliance Wizard, simply answer a series of questions, and the FSMA Wizard identifies specific requirements that may apply. Registrar Corp plans to add FDA's Intentional Adulteration rule when the 2019 compliance date draws nearer.
