The FSMA's “PC Rule For Human Food”: Exemptions, Requirements & Deadlines for Very Small Businesses

  • Food Craft Institute 65 Webster Street Oakland, CA, 94607 United States (map)

Do the new Food Safety Modernization Act rules apply to your food business? FSMA expert Michael Kalish of Food Safety Guides will lead this two hour workshop designed for anyone in the food manufacturing, processing, distributing or co-packing business. 

Under the recently published final rule of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) along with changes to the definitions of a retail food establishment and restaurants, your business may be required to register with the FDA and comply with the new rule.  As a very small business (under $1M in annual food sales), you can qualify for a particular exemption. In this short seminar, expect to learn:

  • The requirements and deadlines in the Preventive Controls Rule for businesses that qualify as very small businesses.
  • How to apply for qualified facility exemption and a general overview of how subpart (A, B, D, E, F and G--yes, G!) will apply to very small businesses.

If you clicked any of the links above and felt overwhelmed by the information, then this seminar is for you! Let Food Safety Guides do the work of translating this bureaucratic labyrinth into plain language and clear actionable items.
