    Release Date: Saturday, November 16 , 2013

    TraceGains will present a webinar on December 13 at 12 p.m. EDT, entitled, "Preparing for FSMA's Animal Food/Feed Rule."

    The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) will make the industry subject to mandatory Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and a new preventive controls program under this new rule (section 103 of FSMA for animal food facilities that must register under section 415 of FD&C Act, 21 U.S.C. § 350d, to establish and implement a food safety system that includes a hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls).

    Under FSMA, the following would become requirements: 
    • A written food safety plan 
    • Hazard analysis 
    • Preventive controls for hazards that are reasonably likely to occur 
    • Monitoring 
    • Corrective actions 
    • Verification 
    • Associated records 

    The webinar will feature Marc Sanchez, senior counsel and adjunct professor, who will address the new proposed rule for the petfood and animal feed industry and its most distinctive and impactful features. Register online to attend the webinar.
