FSMA Readiness Webinar Series

FSMA Readiness Webinar Series

Are YOU Ready?

Four final FSMA rules will be implemented by October of this year.  Many companies will only have one year to bring their operations into compliance.  So little time - so much to do! Helping you effectively and efficiently implement FSMA within your company is a top GMA priority.  This webinar series highlights the differences and specific areas of focus for the new FSMA rules compared with existing HACCP plans and current records requirements used by a diverse array of food categories.

Registration now available for Part III!


  • HACCP to a Food Safety Plan: Part I

    Wednesday, February 25, 2015
    1:30 pm (EST) - 3:00 pm (EST)

    In this installment GMA's FSMA experts tackle converting existing HACCP plans into Food Safety Plans.  This 2-part session will focus on the key elements as they are described in the 'Proposed Rule' (21 CFR 117) and the modified language FDA released in the Supplemental Proposals in October of 2014.

    Part I will explore critical differences related to:

    • Supplemental language – What FDA changed and added.
    • Pre-Requisite Programs and GMPs – When do they become Preventive Controls?
    • HACCP to FSP – What is the same – what is different?

  • Records Access Under FSMA

    Wednesday, August 19, 2015
    1:30 pm (EST) - 2:30 pm (EST)

    The proposed rules cover new ground in the areas of records access as well as Food Safety Plans. What should you, as a food manufacturer, be doing right now within your recordkeeping policies?  Once the final rules are published, food manufacturers may be required to produce records on things such as:

    • Supplier Records
    • Training
    • Your Food Safety Plan
    • Your Food Defense Plan

    Tune in to the third installment of the series for a regulatory update on records access based on the latest information from the Supplemental Proposals.
