Rules 1 and 2 of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)
There are seven Major Rules under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) which aim to drive the industry from a reactive to a more proactive approach to control food safety and human health. As we proceed through the Perigon / RQA factsheet series we will look at each of the Major Rules in greater detail. The first two rules are very similar in nature and are the Preventive Controls for Human Food and the Preventive Controls for Animal Food rules.
The Preventive Controls Rules – Animal and Human
- Preventive controls for human food – food facilities must implement a food safety plan that includes hazard analysis and implementation of risk-based preventive controls to minimize hazards.
- Preventive controls for animal food – food facilities must establish cGMP, hazard analysis, and implement risk-based preventive controls to minimize hazards.
