FSMA Presentation Slides

On-Demand Webinar Recording

FSMA implementation is coming! The National Coffee Association is here to help you prepare—and it’s important to get started now.

The FDA is required to publish its final rule on preventive controls by August 30, 2015 and you’ll only have one year to get ready for enforcement. FSMA inspections will begin early in the fall of 2016 and will be dramatically different than inspections the FDA conducts today.

The webinar covers:
  • How inspections will change under FSMA
  • The consequences of non-compliance
  • FDA’s FSMA implementation plans
  • Where companies should direct their FSMA preparation efforts
