Prepare Your Company to Meet the Final FSMA Subpart G Rule Requirements for the Receiver Liability for Supplier Preventive Controls
More Trainings by this Expert
Based on the FDA FSMA rules for preventive controls and their emphasis on planning for and implementing preventive systems, the final rules require that food supply chain members understand new supply-chain-applied control requirements.
These requirements mean that food and food ingredient buyers must develop a system to collect appropriate supplier qualification and certification records as part of their approval of suppliers system.
Generally, this data repository should be used to risk-rank suppliers for several reasons. First high risk suppliers (those with inadequate preventive systems) should be educated and motivated to improve their own preventive controls. Second, high risk suppliers are generally those who, in the event of a recall, are primary candidates for investigations. Such systems mean that the supply chain controls and data can be used to reduce the time to recall impacted products and to prevent the spread of illness and prevent death.
The system should be used to eliminate low ranking suppliers, materials they use as well as the facilities and training employed to deliver goods.
Why should you Attend: From the rules, it is clear that the under FSMA, the FDA is making receivers liable for supplier preventive control programs. Only suppliers clearly approved and qualified by you may now supply foods and ingredients to your operation. Supplier established hazard preventive controls have now become your hazard preventive controls.
