FDA to Hold FSMA Meetings in CA, NJ and MI Next Month

May 7, 2016 8:31 am0 commentsViews: 2

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will hold three separate 1-day meetings in relation to the agency’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

The meetings–entitled “FDA Food Safety Modernization Act: Focus on Strategic Implementation of Prevention-Oriented Import Safety Programs”–will be held in three different U.S. regions and are aimed at providing importers and other parties with the opportunity for an in-depth discussion on the implementation of FSMA’s import safety programs. This includes foreign supplier verification programs for importers of food for humans and animals, accreditation of third-party certification bodies and FDA’s Voluntary Qualified Importer Program.

During these meetings, participants and key FDA subject matter experts will discuss the next phase of FSMA implementation related to import safety programs, which includes establishing the operational framework for these programs and plans for guidance documents, training, education, and technical assistance. The purpose of the regional outreach public meetings is to continue the dialogue with the importer community on FSMA and elicit ideas that will help to inform the FDA and our stakeholders on how to continue to work together to successfully comply with FSMA mandates and regulations.
