San Rafael, CA – July 19, 2016 – SafetyChain Software, leaders in food safety & quality program management solutions, is pleased to announce an extended July FSMA Fridays session that will focus on deciphering what being FSMA compliant really means.

FSMA Fridays, SafetyChain’s popular monthly series hosted with Dr. David Acheson and The Acheson Group, examines the impact of the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) for companies effected by the rules, and provides guidance on how to prepare for FSMA compliance.

During July’s special 60 minute FSMA Fridays session, taking place July 29, Dr. David Acheson and The Acheson Group team will share insights about what FSMA compliance really means and help distill rhetoric from reality. Discussion topics will include:

  • Is compliance just about record keeping or is there more?
  • What are the underlying challenges of compliance?
  • What processes should companies put into place to ensure they’re ready
  • What should you do if you feel you are not going to be ready
  • How is FDA going to approach inspections after September 17th 2016

As always with FSMA Fridays, The Acheson Group team will be taking audience questions live.

As part of this special session, those in the food industry impacted by FSMA are encouraged to share what FSMA compliance means to them at http://tinyurl.com/truefsmacompliance
