FSMA Inflation Adjusted Cut Offs

Implicit Price Deflators for Gross Domestic Product (GDP)

Several FSMA rules have provisions in which a value is adjusted for inflation and averaged over 3 years. We provide the values based on Price Deflators for Gross Domestic Product (GDP) and the average for the most recent 3 years for the applicable rules below. The GDP deflator is not a static number, and changes monthly. We intend to update the values at the beginning of April each year.

  2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 2016 2017 2018 2019
GDP Deflator 98.118 100 101.754 103.667 104.755 105.903 107.903 110.308 112.345

If you choose to use the information below to determine whether your facility, farm, or other operation (depending on the relevant FSMA rule) had average annual sales/revenue below the most recent adjusted cut-off, you would:

  1. Determine your annual sales and/or revenue information (depending on the FSMA rule) for each of these years: 2017, 2018, and 2019;
  2. Calculate your average annual sales/revenue for those three years;
  3. Compare your three-year average to the value posted in the column titled “Average 3 Year Value for 2017 – 2019.”
