The Food Safety Modernisation Act (FSMA) is the most significant change to US Food Safety legislation in over 70 years. The act was signed into law by President Obama in 2011. FSMA is in response to numerous food poisoning incidents that have occurred in the US over the past ten years.
The FSMA concept is to move away from a reactive approach towards a preventive system.
With FSMA there are seven rules which are specific to different types of foods, elements of the Supply chain and stakeholders. With this level of complexity and change the challenge for Irish indigenous and Irish based multinational food companies is to understand how these rules will affect their current Food Safety Management Systems.
