National Feed and Grain Association has learned that FDA is planning to issue four separate sets of proposed regulations on the one-year anniversary of President Obama’s signing into law the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Those four regulations are:
(1) Preventive controls for human food
(2) Preventive controls for feed, feed ingredients, and pet food
(3) Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP)
(4) Regulations requiring produce growers to implement preventive controls and product tracing systems for certain types of produce
FDA is also expected to release a “fact sheet” for each of the proposed regulations summarizing the major requirements, as well as schedule public meetings to provide opportunity for comment. Full article from NGFA.
