FSMA Update: FDA Launches Web Page with Compliance Dates

  • The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) introduced a new web page that consolidates the compliance dates for the Agency’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rules. The rules that include compliance dates, in the order they became final, are:

    • Preventive Controls for Human Food

    • Preventive Controls for Animal Food

    • Produce Safety

    • Foreign Supplier Verification

    • Sanitary Transportation

    • Intentional Adulteration

  • These rules have staggered compliance dates, in part, based on the size of a business. FDA also has provided a graphic timeline that shows these staggered compliance dates by month and year.

  • There are no compliance dates for the Accredited Third-Party Certification rule since it is a voluntary program. However, as previously reported on this blog, FDA launched a website earlier this year where an organization can apply to be recognized as a Third-Party accreditation body.

  • FDA also announced that the web pages for the Preventive Control for Human Foodand Preventive Controls for Animal Food have been updated as of Oct. 19 and Oct. 20, respectively.
