SafetyChain Software's October 30 FSMA Fridays Continues Discussion of Final FSMA Preventive Control Rules for Human & Animal Food

SafetyChain's Monthly FSMA Fridays Online Session, Featuring Dr. David Acheson and the Acheson Group Team, Will Focus on Supply Chain Environmental Monitoring and Distribution Centers

SAN RAFAEL, CA--(Marketwired - October 27, 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 October 30, 2015 FSMA Fridays session: Preventive Controls for Human & Animal Food Part 2 -- Supply Chain Environmental Monitoring, Distribution Centers and More.

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.

Due to an overwhelming response to last month's FSMA Fridays session, the October session taking place this Friday, October 30 will be a continuation of the discussion on the final Preventive Control Rules for Human and Animal Food. Dr. David Acheson and his TAG team will share insights on:

  • Main challenges that the industry is facing with the Preventive Control rule implementation
  • Best approach to supply chain control compliance
  • What companies should do with their current HACCP plan
  • Best approach to record keeping with all the new requirements for records
  • Best approach to developing an environmental control program
  • Preventive control rule compliance for companies that are GFSI-certified
  • What companies that use scraps for animal feed need to do to comply with the animal rule

As always, the Acheson Group team will be taking audience questions live.
