FDA Food Transportation Rule

Accredited Third-Party Certification Program

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is transforming the nation’s food safety system by shifting the focus from responding to foodborne illness to preventing it. Congress enacted FSMA in response to dramatic changes in the global food system and in our understanding of foodborne illness and its consequences, including the realization that preventable foodborne illness is both a significant public health problem and a threat to the economic well-being of the food system.

FDA has finalized seven major rules to implement FSMA, recognizing that ensuring the safety of the food supply is a shared responsibility among many different points in the global supply chain for both human and animal food. The FSMA rules are designed to make clear specific actions that must be taken at each of these points to prevent contamination. [FDA]

The FDA New Era of Smarter Food Safety (4 Core Elements)
The FDA Webinar 24, 2024
The Data and Technology in the FDA New Era of Smarter Food Safety and Alex Presentation

Core element 1. Tech-enabled Traceability

Core element 2. Smarter Tools and Approaches for Prevention and Outbreak Response

Core element 3. New Business Models and Retail Modernization

Core element 4. Food Safety Culture

“These are the foundational pillars of the New Era of Smarter Food Safety, covering the range of technologies, analytics, business models, modernization and values that are its building blocks. 

These elements, working together, will help create a safer and more digital, traceable food system.

The New Era of Smarter Food Safety represents a new approach to food safety, leveraging technology and other tools to create a safer and more digital, traceable food system.
Smarter food safety is about more than just technology.

It’s also about simpler, more effective, and modern approaches and processes. It’s about leadership, creativity, and culture.

This blueprint outlines the approach FDA will take over the next decade to usher in the New Era of Smarter Food Safety.

It will evolve as food technologies and the food system evolve.

It builds on work that FDA has done to implement the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), which established science and risk-based protections. ” (FDA)
