Consulting firm FDAImports.com has released three new training videos based on the US Food and Drug Administration’s proposed rules for hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls and standards for produce safety under the Food Safety Modernization Act.
The Web-based videos focus on key areas of impact within the rules that are not immediately evident but could have significant impact on the food industry, both domestic and abroad. Videos include:
â€¢ FDA’s invention of an adulteration charge
â€¢ Mandatory recall plans
â€¢ “Qualified individuals” and definitions
â€¢ “Should” and “Must” changes within cGMP
Standards for Produce Safety
â€¢ Lack of adulteration charge
â€¢ Warning letter example of FDA already acting on the proposed rule
Impact for Importers and Foreign Suppliers
â€¢ Comment period timeframe
â€¢ Exemptions and HACCP/HARPC/cGMP overlap
â€¢ Increased costs of mandatory requirements
â€¢ FDA already implementing proposed regulations
