Regulatory Seminar: FSMA 204 Compliance Planning and Implementation


In FSMA 204, the Final Rule, the FDA established traceability recordkeeping requirements for certain foods. This regulation is intended to allow for faster identification and rapid removal of potentially contaminated foods from the market. Companies are required to share these records with the FDA within 24 hours, linking product lot codes and other key data elements in a sortable spreadsheet.  

Food companies must be prepared to collect, store and share this information, as well as document their FSMA 204 traceability plans. Learn the basics of the Final Rule and how you can build a plan for compliance based on this regulation. 

Attendees will receive our FSMA 204 toolkit, including a checklist for FSMA 204 planning.
