A two-hour webinar provided by Sanitary Cold Chain is entitled “Assuring Food Carrier FDA Transportation Food Safety Planning Compliance.”
The final full compliance date for the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Sanitary Transportation in Human and Animal Foods is April 6, 2018. All training, food safety transportation plans and system improvements must be completed by that date.
Foodservice operations must assure that motor carriers have a plan in place and are implementing according to that plan. This webinar is recommended for food carriers and receivers impacted by the rules.
Receivers such as retail and restaurant operations are required to assure that the carrier supply chain is in compliance with the new FSMA Sanitary Transportation Rules.
Now is the carrier’s chance to put a team together and learn what to do to develop a plan that complies with FDA and customer requirements. After this webinar, teams will be able to immediately begin evaluating or writing the food safety, recall and food defense plans for the carrier company.
In addition to mandated training, the rules require company plans to develop substantial improvement to procedures and processes involving sanitation and temperature controls designed to prevent adulteration of human and animal foods during transportation. Substantial written agreements between shippers and carriers must also be established and new documentation systems must be in place to provide evidence of rule compliance.
The webinar’s presenter is Dr John Ryan, a certified Preventive Controls Qualified Individual (PQCI) specializing in food safety process control and food safety plan validation. He holds a PhD in research and statistical methods and has international manufacturing quality and operations experience in large and small manufacturing operations. A retired Hawaii State Department of Agriculture Quality Assurance Division administrator, Ryan operates carrier transportation control consulting at www.SanitaryColdChain.com.
