The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Preventive Controls for Human Food rule is now final, and compliance dates for some businesses begin in September 2016.
Broadly, the rules require registered food facilities to maintain a food safety plan, perform a hazard analysis, and institute preventive controls for dealing with those hazards. Facilities also have to verify and document that their controls are working.
Very small businesses have three years to comply with the rules, small businesses have two years, and the rest have one year.
