The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently finalized two new food safety rules, the Preventive Controls Rule and the Produce Safety Rule, under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). These rules establish new requirements for farms and food businesses, with different levels of compliance based on operation type and size. In order to help farmers and food businesses navigate the new federal food safety requirements, the National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) has released an updated version of our “Am I Affected?” FSMA flowchart.
Originally created during the FSMA proposed rulemaking stage, the flowchart has now been modified to reflect the final versions of the rule governing produce farms (the Produce Rule) and the rule governing food-processing facilities (the Preventive Controls Rule).
