FDA Update: Food Safety Modernization Act Compliance Dates

Sep 02, 2016 | Anastasia Sonneman

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is moving forward with implementing the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, with the first major compliance dates beginning this month for large food facilities. While the major provisions of FSMA rules are being implemented as planned, the FDA recently issued a final rule that extends and clarifies the compliance dates for certain provisions in four of the seven foundational rules.

These changes are part of the FDA’s continuing efforts to make the rules as practical as possible while still protecting public health. The final rule addresses technical issues and better aligns compliance dates across four rules, including the two CGMP and Preventive Controls rules for human and animal food, Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVP), and Produce Safety. The updated compliance dates provide more time for manufacturers to meet requirements related to certain assurances that their customers must provide and more time for importers of food contact substances.
