President Obama signed into law the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) nearly three years ago. After significant delays, the FDA has made significant progress this year towards implementing this act and published five key proposed FSMA implementing regulations. These proposed regulations and related FDA enforcement policies will have far-reaching implications for how food for both human or animal consumption is regulated in the United States. Companies need to be well informed about the impact FSMA may have on their businesses and should be actively engaged in the policy development process to help ensure that FDA receives the stakeholder input it needs.
