FDA Issues FSMA Preventive Controls Guidance for Small Businesses
October 31, 2016 - Kestrel Food Safety
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued two Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) small entity compliance guidance documents to assist small and very small businesses with the implementation of the Preventive Controls for Human Food and Preventive Controls for Animal Food rules.
The guidance outlines who must comply with the rule, who is exempt from parts of the rules or subject to modified requirements, and outlines key information for qualified facilities (i.e., small businesses).
The guidance documents are two of dozens of guidance documents the FDA intends to release as it continues with the implementation of FSMA. The Agency released guidance for both the human and animal food rules in August 2016.
