Module 13: Meeting FSMA Requirements for Food
Publish Date: 01 August 2022
This module supports food production sites to understand how the regulations established under FSMA apply to their company’s business activities.
This module supports food processing and manufacturing sites certified (or pursuing certification) to Issue 9 of the Global Standard Food Safety to help them understand how regulations established under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)apply to their operational activities.
It assists manufacturing organisations in understanding those prescriptive elements within the FSMA preventive controls for human foods and animal foods that are not explicitly covered within the Global Standard Food Safety.
It does not represent a certification, nor guarantee that all aspects of the site’s operations will be found fully compliant with the regulation; rather, it is a deeper clarification of what the expected interpretations and expectations will be, once implementation dates come into effect.
Who should use this publication?
This module will be useful to any facility located within the US as an assessment step in preparation for their required compliance date. It may be used by facilities outside of the US who see this market as a current or future export target, to show evidence to the importer of record that they have specifically addressed certain aspects of the supplier verification program. Additionally, it may be used by specifiers to gain understanding and evidence of compliance with specific parts of the regulations.
It is a requirement that all suppliers undergoing a BRCGS audit to the Global Standard Food Safety have access to an official copy of the Standard. Companies must comply with all modules to achieve certification.
