The Food Safety Modernization Act

The Food Safety Modernization Act, passed into law in 2011 dramatically changed and upgraded the way we work on food safety. A “responsive” program was replaced with a “preventive program,” with seven major pillars supported with individual rules developed by the FDA.

7 Pillars of the Food Safety Modernization Act

There are seven major rules developed from the Food Safety Modernization act. The FDA has partnered with FSPCA to create the standardized training which is recognized by the FDA to be in compliance with the rule.
