Industry Certificate in Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)


FSMA, the most sweeping reform of US food safety laws in 70 years, regulates food throughout the supply chain. By changing the focus of food safety from reacting to contamination to preventing it, FSMA places new demands on US and non-US food producers, facilities and importers.

We have developed a new comprehensive training program to help you and your employees understand the complex new food safety rules and how to comply with them. To meet the specific needs of your organization, we offer courses in FSMA regulations that apply to:

  • Food manufacturers and suppliers
  • Food importers
  • Pet food and feed manufacturers and suppliers
  • Fresh produce growers and farms

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) directed the U.S. FDA to promulgate new rules to improve food safety protection domestically and internationally, as well as reduce the number of foodborne illnesses outbreaks. It will be a system in which the food industry systematically puts in place measures proven effective in preventing contamination.

FSMA aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus to preventing contamination of the food supply, rather than responding to it. Food industry training is important to the successful implementation of the (FSMA). Its evolving strategy to train domestic and foreign food producers, and domestic importers, on the preparations needed to meet requirements of the FSMA rules.
