SafetyChain Software's July 31 "FSMA Fridays" to Cover: One Month to Go - What Best-in-Class Companies are Doing NOW to Get Ready for FSMA

Monthly Online FSMA Fridays Series, Featuring FSMA Icon Dr. David Acheson and The Acheson Group Team, Will Discuss How Companies Are Approaching FSMA Preparations for Day 1 Compliance

SAN RAFAEL, CA--(Marketwired - July 28, 2015) - 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 July 31, 2015 FSMA Fridays session: One Month to Go - What Best-in-Class Companies are Doing NOW to Get Ready for FSMA.

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.

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

The July 31 FSMA Fridays session will discuss:

  • How are leading companies approaching FSMA compliance preparations as they get ready for FSMA?
  • What are the FSMA Friday expert panel members seeing as some of the major readiness gaps that are causing companies concern?
  • How are companies approaching building “FSMA-compliant” food safety plans?
  • How are companies with HACCP plans feeling? Do they think they’re "good" and do not have much to do to satisfy the food safety plan requirements?
  • Are companies planning to do a lot more testing as part of FSMA readiness?
  • How are companies approaching supply chain risk controls for FSMA compliance?
  • The team will also answer audience questions live.

As always, the FSMA Fridays session will begin with a general FSMA update from Dr. Acheson.
