More Trainings by this Expert
This is part 1 of a three part required training resulting from the finalization of new US FDA food transportation laws.
Session 1, "Responsibilities of the Carrier Under the Final Rules" covers the Final Rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods (now law) as published by the Food and Drug Administration under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

The final rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods establish training requirements for all carrier personnel engaged in food transportation operations.
Training certificates are required for these topics:

- Basic sanitary transportation practices to address those potential problems
This training is REQUIRED for all food carrier personnel engaged in transportation operations upon hiring and as needed thereafter.
