“What Constitutes a Successful FDA Audit?” is Topic of April 25 FSMA Friday – Sponsored by SafetyChain Software, Featuring Dr. David Acheson and The Acheson Group Team

Monthly FSMA discussion to focus on how FSMA’s Third Party Accreditation Rule impacts the audit processes, whether or not GFSI’s audit standards will satisfy FSMA requirements and the elements of a good FDA audit

SafetyChain Software’s popular FSMA Fridays series, featuring Dr. David Acheson and The Acheson Group’s food safety team, will be held this Friday, April 25 at 9:00 a.m. PT. This month’s FSMA Fridays discussion will focus on how to have a successful FDA audit under FSMA, how FSMA’s proposed third party accreditation rule will impact the audit process and what food and beverage companies should be doing today to prepare.

FSMA Fridays – launched by SafetyChain Software, innovators of realtime Food Safety Chain Management Systems (FSCMS) that automate, streamline and improve™ food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) while promoting regulatory, GFSI and customer compliance – provides 1500+ participants from the food and beverage industry monthly, live updates and practical advice to prepare for FSMA.

Topics to be covered during the April 25 FSMA Fridays session include:

  • How will FSMA’s third party audit accreditation rule impact the FSMA audit process?
  • Will a GFSI audit satisfy the requirements of FSMA?
  • What are the key elements of a good FDA audit?
  • How do I know if my audit–and auditor—is up to the task within the FSMA requirements?
  • Will we have enough good auditors to meet the need?

And, as always, the session will begin with an overall FSMA update; the team will also take questions live from participants.

Registration is free for interested parties. When participants register they will also receive links to past session recordings, which have included topics on Supply Chain Controls, Sanitary Transport Rule, Foreign Supplier & 3rd Party Auditor Rules, Produce Rules, Preventive Controls for Human Food, Environmental Control Systems and more.
