Implementation of FSMA
How do you prepare more than 50 rules, guidance documents, reports and studies within strict timeframes? That is what FDA is charged with doing under the Food Safety Modernization Act that was signed into law on January 4, 2011. To meet this challenge, the leadership of the FDA Foods Program has put in place a structured implementation process to ensure clearly defined roles and accountability for each FSMA deliverable, transparent prioritization of tasks based on public health impact, and streamlined decision making and clearances.
The implementation teams pictured below report directly to the senior leadership of the Foods Program, drawing fully upon all relevant expertise and capacity from across FDA but working through a streamlined matrix management system that is intended to expedite the work needed to implement FSMA.
