FDA issued Federal Register notices to extend the comment periods on the proposed rules for Current Good Manufacturing Practice and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food, and Standards for the Growing, Harvesting, Packing and Holding of Produce for Human Consumption for 60 additional days until November 15.

This is the second and final extension of the comment period for these two rules, part of the Food Safety Modernization Act. The extension of the comment period also applies to the information collection provisions associated with the proposed rules.

FDA extended the comment periods to allow those interested the opportunity to consider the interrelationships between the proposals, published January 16, and the two new proposed rules, published July 29. These new rules include the Foreign Supplier Verification Programs for Importers of Food for Humans and Animals, and the Accreditation of Third-Party Auditors/Certification Bodies to Conduct Food Safety Audits and to Issue Certifications.
