    Implications of FSMA Rules for the Food Packaging Industry

    Aug 16, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM (CT)
    The food industry is buzzing about FSMA, the U.S. Food Safety Modernization Act. Required implementation dates vary, depending on the size of your company and the specific rule under which you are regulated. The packaging industry is covered by the records access, administrative detention and recall authority provisions of FSMA. The Food and Drug Administration has recently clarified that food contact materials are not bound by requirements related to sanitary transportation and Foreign Supplier Verification Programs. In cases wherein packaging manufacturers handle or supply materials that are not exclusively food contact substances, they may need to register as food facilities and meet additional requirements. This presentation will help you determine how FSMA may or may not apply to your work.
