With publication of the first set of final rules for FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) expected any day now, food safety teams are busy strategizing as to how they are going to prepare for compliance and be “FSMA-ready” on Day 1.

Across industry, it is generally agreed that being certified to a GFSI scheme is a solid foundation for FSMA compliance. In a new three-part online series,  “GFSI in the Age of FSMA: How GFSI Schemes Align With and Prepare You for FSMA”, the North American leaders of the three major GFSI schemes – SQF, BRC and FSSC 22000 – will discuss the following topics:

  • How certification to their scheme prepares a company for FSMA compliance in terms of alignment with:
    • Supplier Controls
    • Building a food safety plan
    • Migrating from HACCP to HARPC
    • Being audit ready all the time
    • Environmental monitoring … human & animal food rules … and much more
  • What changes to the scheme have been made (or are planned) to better align with FSMA
  • Gaps the leaders see in FSMA that are filled by their scheme
  • What companies who are, or plan to be, GFSI certified should be doing now for Day 1 FSMA compliance

The series, which launches September 25 is complimentary. Learn more and register at: http://www.safetychain.com/GFSI-Webinar-Series
