The final FDA FSMA (Food Safety Modernisation Act) rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods were published in April 2016. Perishable food shippers, carriers,and receivers must now be in full compliance.

Food importers and their foreign food suppliers and carriers must comply with all rule requirements. The new rules impact load, unload and carrier operations and cover sanitation as well as temperature control requirements that go far beyond those previously published as “guidance”. Today, compliance is mandatory and enforceable by Customs and Border Protection, Homeland Security, State laws, the National Transportation Administration, the FDA and Center for Disease Control, and other federal agencies aligned to support the implementation of the FSMA. 

This one-hour session with expert Dr. John Ryan is intended for all transportation operations personnel involved in the transportation of human and animal foods into the U.S. and from foreign food suppliers.  After covering the basic rules, the impact of cross and contact contamination,allergen controls, hazards, theft, food fraud, mandatory training, security,spills, accidents and preventive concepts are briefly covered.  

Understanding, preparing for and complying with sanitary transportation rules impacts the entire food supply chain.  New procedures, monitoring,container wash, testing, and inspection are required for compliance.
