You have less than one year to establish a sound compliance system to fulfill the US FDA Law for the Sanitary and Temperature Controlled Transportation of Human and Animal Foods.

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.

This 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 provide evidence of compliance.
  • Drivers
  • Load and unload personnel
  • Vehicle qualification and certification

Course Objective

The session will cover each section of the new sanitary food transportation law you need to protect consumers and your company.

The new law was published on April 6, 2016, 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 unload, as well as make distribution and transportation process improvements.

Join this session to get the information and knowledge to comply with FSMA sanitary food transportation law. Get armed with the knowledge needed to build a basic plan and learn the difference between preventive and corrective actions.
