Lunch & Learn Webinar
Are you FSMA compliant? Update on compliance, enforcement, training and implementation resources

Join us for our February 26 Lunch & Learn Webinar as food safety experts from FDA’s Produce Safety Network and iDecisionSciences provide an update on FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FMSA) compliance, enforcement and resources for produce operations.

As a result of the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FMSA) regulations going into effect, the produce sector is now subject to new food safety regulations. Since January 26, 2018 produce farms designated as “large” (those with annual sales greater than $500,000) are expected to be in compliance with most of the provisions in the Produce Safety Rule; smaller farms will be phased in over the next few years. 

During the webinar, Western Growers members will hear about the relevant compliance dates for produce operations, as well as enforcement activities and upcoming training. Additionally, an expert from the Produce Safety Network (PSN) will provide an overview of current PSN efforts to provide regulatory support and technical assistance that are meant to facilitate the implementation of the Produce Safety Rule.

Webinar attendees will also hear about the wealth of resources developed by Western Growers available to assist farming operations to navigate through different FSMA regulations, in particular the Produce Safety Rule.
