FDA schedules public meeting on FSMA Preventive Controls rules
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced today a public meeting to offer the opportunity for discussion on the recently finalized rules on preventive controls for human and animal foods under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
The meeting, entitled “FDA Food Safety Modernization Act: Final Rules to Establish Requirements for Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis, and Risk – Based Preventive Controls for Human and Animal Food,” will be held on Oct. 20 from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Chicago Marriott Downtown Magnificent Mile.
The public meeting will also provide an opportunity to discuss the FDA’s comprehensive planning effort for the next phase of FSMA implementation, which involves putting in place the new public health prevention measures and the risk-based industry accountability framework that is at the core of the act.
