Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is a comprehensive top-to-bottom overhaul of the United States food safety regulatory system. FSMA will touch every segment of the business supply chain from manufacturers to consumers.
FSMA requires that companies establish food safety plans and maintain records that are easily accessible for Food & Drug Administration (FDA) inspectors. The FDA is requiring manufacturers and distributors to have record keeping capabilities including the ability to capture and maintain the following:
- Lot Numbers
- Expiration Dates
- Manufacturing Codes
FSMA requires manufacturers and distributors to keep 2 years of records for all products they have handled in their facility and have the ability to notify all end users of a recall within 24 hours. The compliance dates stipulated by the FDA below.
How TrackRight by ProCat Can Help with FSMA Compliance
TrackRight is a data mart that holds aggregated data from ReceiveRight, PickRight, and ShipRight for 2 years to help satisfy
FSMA requirements. TrackRight reports can be used to show receiving, picking, and delivery information, including any
temperatures recorded. Lot information is also stored, so recalls can be supported. TrackRight stores data longer compared
to PickRight, which holds 14-30 days of information.
