GMP’s are the basic conditions and practices that the food industry must follow for processing safe food under sanitary conditions. Recently, under new FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) guidelines, current GMP’s changed from 21 CFR 110 to 21 CFR 117. This workshop will discuss the new part 117 requirements and focus on the implementation to meet current guidelines.
The FSMA Final Rule for Preventive Controls for Human Food mandates that a manufacturing/processing facility have a risk-based supply chain program for those raw material and other ingredients for which it has identified a hazard requiring a supply-chain applied control. The food industry, today more than ever, is focused on supply chain transparency.
