FSMA Receiver Liability for Supplier Preventative Controls

(Webinar length:  1hr 24min)


The wait for final FSMA Rules is over.  In September, 2015 the FDA published the final FSMA rules for thePreventive Controls for Human and Animal Foods.  The newly published Subpart G rules for “requirements to establish and implement a supply chain program” clearly establish receiver liabilities focused on preventing the potential of supply chain hazards from entering the food supply chain.  New rule requirements include 33 different sections intended to establish what food receivers “must” do to comply.

Both U.S and imported foods are covered.  In the rules, receiver responsibilities for verifying the validity, implementation and documentation of hazard reducing supply-chain-applied controls means that receivers must select, qualify, certify verify and manage suppliers they use.

These new Subpart G rules recognize inherent need for receivers to assure that the food they receive and process are not only the responsibility of the supplier but, now, make the receiver liable for supplier preventive controls as well.

In this session, we will lay out these new supply-chain-applied control rule requirements and explore some of the options open to receivers when it comes to assuring that their own documentation systems provide proof of rule compliance.

Why you should attend:
