Is your facility ready for the first phase of compliance requirements under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)?
Even though the FDA’s deadlines are tiered, are you prepared to handle potential downstream market dynamics that demand ‘day-1’ compliance from suppliers, without regard to their size? FSMA cGMP Readiness Program was created to help you address your most immediate compliance needs while developing and expanding your resources for ongoing compliance.
Because of our experience in the biofuels industry, we’re being asked a number of questions about what it will take managers to demonstrate their commitment to animal feed safety to regulators in the new era of FDA oversight.
Proactive action now can help ensure your animal feed and ingredients like distillers’ grains won’t be left out in the dust once FSMA begins taking effect.
- If you have onsite assets dedicated to addressing FSMA and are just looking for technical assistance with specific compliance considerations, our lead instructor team will find you answers and keep you on the right track.
- If your staff is stretched beyond capacity with existing commitments and you are looking for a more comprehensive level of support, we are ready and available to help tailor, develop, and validate your overall ethanol, DDG, and other feed strategies for FSMA compliance.
Under-compliance with new regulations is always a concern. But over-compliance comes with its costs as well; you don’t want to have to buy a cannon to kill a mosquito. Both approaches can be costly, so leverage existing expertise to find the right balance appropriate to address your plant-specific feed safety considerations.
FSMA is not a once and done, finalize and forget regulatory program. It’s more like a marriage arranged by Congress that weds the regulatory oversight of the FDA to the ongoing operations of your facility.
Our FSMA team has tailored services to train and assist you throughout any stage of the process. The multi-phase options are designed to meet expectations specific to the FDA’s rules, regulations, and tiered compliance deadlines. It starts with technical assistance, and can culminate with a full quality assurance, audit package, and certification you can provide customers who use you as a supplier.
