In this timely webinar, we will review FDA’s Produce Safety Rule – a program under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The Produce Safety Rule seeks to control food safety risk from certain fruits and vegetables grown for human consumption. FDA promulgated the final rules in 2016 with staggered compliance dates, based on the covered farms’ revenue. Some of the compliance dates have already passed; however, FDA stated that it would begin enforcing the requirements starting early 2019.

When FDA’s enforcement begins, there will certainly be confusion, as is always the case with the implementation of any new regulatory programs. Here, we will summarize what we already know by briefly reviewing the Produce Safety Rule’s requirements and the Rule’s interaction with the Foreign Supplier Verification Program. We will address the likely enforcement approach that FDA will take with the Produce Safety Rule, and how each affected party should be prepared for the Rule’s implementation.
