Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA): Essential Resources for Compliance

Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Logo

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the first major update of federal food safety laws since 1938. FSMA gives the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) broad new powers to prevent food safety problems, detect and respond to food safety issues, and improve the safety of imported foods.

TraceGains' customers benefit from our ability to provide easy compliance with many of the document-intensive requirements of FSMA, such as an out-of-the-box tool to manage Foreign Supplier Verification (Section 301, FSVP). And while your document management system (DMS), shared drive, or physical filing cabinet may handle the mandatory two-year document retention requirement of FSMA, only TraceGains will actually look inside these documents, alert you of non-compliances, and initiate corrective action requests (CARs) based on your unique business requirements.
