New Tool Helps Growers Understand FSMA Responsibly

New Tool Helps Growers Understand FSMA Responsibly

FDA regulatory compliance firm Registrar Corp recently launched the FSMA Compliance Wizard, a free tool to help food facilities, importers, and farms determine their possible requirements under FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).


New requirements under FSMA involve many nuances depending on the size of a business, its functions, the types of food it handles, and even its location. Most FSMA rules offer modified requirements and a longer compliance period for small and very small businesses (terms defined differently in each rule).

Registrar Corp urges each registered food facility to consider its exemption and modified exemption status carefully, as it may be more prudent to comply than seek a possible exemption. Registrar Corp’s FSMA Wizard is an excellent tool for any facility to begin the FSMA compliance process.

To use Registrar Corp’s FSMA Compliance Wizard, simply answer a series of questions regarding your facility, and the FSMA Wizard identifies specific requirements that may apply. Possible requirements may be identified under the following FSMA rules:

  • FDA Preventive Controls for Human Food
  • FDA Preventive Controls for Animal Food
  • FDA Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP)
  • FDA Produce Safety

Registrar Corp plans to add FDA’s Intentional Adulteration rule when the 2019 compliance date draws nearer.┬áRegistrar Corp Regulatory Advisors are available 24-hours a day to answer any questions users may have throughout the process.
