FSMA is the Food Safety Modernization Act implemented by the FDA. FSMA enables the FDA to protect public health with preventative controls. All partners in all sections of the food industry must assess and address what part of FSMA is applicable to them.
The Food Safety Team at KLA will answer questions about your product line and your facility. Some of your questions will mostly address the following food safety points:
Who in your company is qualified to implement all required steps under FSMA?
Do you have a PCQI (Preventive Control Qualified Individual)?
Who reviews and keep records of food safety compliance?
Which food safety hazards do you face requiring evaluation under FSMA?
Are you addressing FSMA food safety only during production?
What about FSMA for your ingredients? For your suppliers?
Is FSMA carried out for your full supply chain?
Which of your products are not regulated by FSMA and the FDA?
Which products are regulated by USDA?

Certain food facilities must develop plans to protect against adulteration of products meant to deliberately cause harm to consumers. KLA's Food Safety Specialist can create a new or revise an existing Food Defense Plan for your facility.
Under U.S. FDA's Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls ("HARPC") rule, certain food facilities must develop and implement written recall plans for any foods with a hazard requiring a control.
KLA Safety Specialists can develop new food safety plans and programs for your facility or review your current systems and documentation. For existing plans and programs, KLA reviews for completeness, effectiveness, and regulatory compliance.
