FSMA Guidelines In A Nutshell


The Preventive Controls for Human Food (PCHF) regulation, often referred to as FSMA – Food Safety Modernization Act, is the first major overhaul of our nation’s food safety practices since 1938. This law has been enacted to ensure the safe preparation of food products for human consumption in the United States. It includes new regulations for farms that grow fresh produce (fruits and vegetables), for the facilities that process the food that we eat, and for the many points in the global supply chain for human and animal food.

Congress enacted FSMA in response to the dramatic changes in the global food system and FDA has now finalized seven major rules for its implementation that anyone involved in the human food chain production must adhere to.

If you are involved in the sale or import of foods in the United States, you must be aware of the compliance now required by FDA’s FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act). This regulation is complex and includes rules and related programs, guidance documents, training and technical assistance, compliance and implementation tools and more! It is important that you understand your responsibility with regard to these new regulations if:

  1. you import food into the United States from foreign suppliers,
  2. you are a foreign manufacturing facility and export food products to the U.S.A.,
  3. you produce food here in the USA,
  4. you are part of the global supply chain – product packaging, transport, logistics, etc.
