Final compliance dates for full implementation of the FDA Sanitary Transportation rules have passed. If you have not fully implemented a system to meet these rules, your company is out of federal compliance.
Over 84,000 food shippers, carriers and receivers are impacted by this law and most have less than one year for full compliance. This new law requires significant changes to procedures currently employed for food transportation operations, vehicles, tools and equipment used in food transportation. The final rules have now established the law which has significant differences from earlier published proposed food transportation rules, laws and guidance documents. Self-reporting of compliance failures is required as are critical shipper-carrier agreements for data, records and reporting.
Transportation and Logistics food transportation food safety rules have been finalized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Under congressional instructions, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires the FDA to audit, enforce and improve new rules of food transportation operations, personnel, vehicles, load and unload personnel and practices, cross contact (contamination), vehicle storage, inspection and test, training, records retention, and vehicle qualification. 
These law provides a significant focus on:
  • Foods not completely enclosed by a container;
  • Contracts of Carriage
  • Risk reducing adulteration prevention;
  • Personnel training and certification;
  • Procedures for sanitation, precool, inspection and data collection;
  • Fulfillment agreements between shippers and carriers and
  • Maintenance and record keeping that provides evidence of compliance.
  • Drivers
  • Load and unload personnel
  • Vehicle qualification and certification

Why should you attend this webinar?

The session will cover each section of the new sanitary food transportation law you need to protect consumers and your company.
The new law went into effect on April 6, 1016, which mean there is little time left for perishable food carriers, shippers, receivers and maintenance operations to develop and implement risk reducing preventive food handling, load and un-load, as well as make distribution and transportation process improvements.
