FSMA Fridays Session Archive on “Traceability Requirements and Best Practices” is Now Available – Sponsored by SafetyChain Software

Featuring Dr. David Acheson and The Acheson Group Team, June 27th’s FSMA Friday session focused on the proposed preventive control rule traceability requirements and how they fit into a recall plan.

SafetyChain Software’s popular monthly FSMA Fridays June session recording is now available. Featuring Dr. David Acheson and The Acheson Group’s food safety team, last Friday’s June 27 session focused on FSMA’s proposed preventive control rule requirements for traceability, how this fits into a recall plan and how FSMA addresses traceability.

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 close to 2,000monthly participants from the food and beverage industry with live updates and practical advice to prepare for FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

FSMA Fridays June 27 focus on Traceablity Requirements and Best Practices included the following discussion topics:

  • The proposed preventive control rule requires a recall plan—is traceability covered through mock recalls?
  • How does FSMA address traceability, and why is traceability a part of FSMA?
  • What does FSMA require FDA to do in terms of traceability
  • What did the traceability pilots recommend and are those recommendations now in effect?
  • Will FDA require electronic recordkeeping?
  • What should companies do now? And what will FDA do next?

And, as always, the session began with an overall FSMA update; and the team took questions live from participants. The session recording is available to all participants of FSMA Fridays.

Registration is free for interested parties. When participants register they will receive a link to the June archived session, as well as, 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.
