SafetyChain Software, leaders in Food Safety Chain Management Systems that Automate, Streamline & Improve Food Safety and Quality Assurance™ (FSQA), is pleased to announce the topic for its November 20, 2015 FSMA Fridays session: Final Rules for Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) and Produce.

SafetyChain’s FSMA Fridays is an online, interactive forum that helps the food and beverage industry stay up-to-date on FDA’s Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA); examines the impact FSMA rules will have on food safety and quality operations; and provides guidance on how to prepare for FSMA compliance. It is estimated that more than 80 percent of food and beverage companies will have to comply with FSMA.

This popular monthly series with more than 2,000 ongoing registrants features FSMA icon Dr. David Acheson and The Acheson Group’s (TAG) food safety team, who address pre-submitted and live questions from the audience, on a schedule of FSMA related topics.

The November session, taking place this Friday, November 20, will focus on the final rules for FSVP and Produce. The Acheson Group team will share insights on:

  • Final Produce Rule: Key changes from proposed rule and final rule key components
  • Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) Rule: Key changes from proposed rule and final rule key components
  • The definition of “importer” under the final FSVP Rule
  • Who is impacted by these rules and how long companies have to be compliant
