The Building Your FSMA Plan Series

Session 1 (was held Spring 2016).  Be sure to request the document templates provide to attendees.
Session 2 (was held Fall 2016) will focus on Hazard Analysis, CCP’s & Control Limits under FSMA’s expanded definitions.  We will also discuss Supply Chain requirements and your Recall Preventative Control.  The new Sanitary Transportation regulations that impact hauling bulk water will be reviewed.
Session 3 (was held Spring 2017) will focus on insuring your Work Instructions, especially those SSOPs related to sanitation, are fully compliant.  At the end of this session we will have covered all the required elements of a Food Safety Plan.
Session 4 (Fall 2017) will focus on FDA updates, Food Defense and intentional adulteration, what to expect from 3rd party inspections as it relates to FSMA plus the opportunity to have a one-on-one review of your completed Food Safety Plan.

MABWA provides regular FSMA updates and training as presented by Chris Dunn, DunnWorks. Each FSMA Seminar qualifies for Continuing Education Credits with the International Bottled Water Association.

The next seminar will be the last of a four-part series on “Building Your FSMA Compliant Food Safety Plan”.  This series is designed to help you update your HACCP & GMP program to be FSMA compliant. Medium-sized plants have until September 2017 to comply, while small plants have until September 2018. However, some of FSMA’s requirements have already gone into effect!

The session will start off with an update on what the FDA has recently released that could impact your bottling plant.  This will include a discussion on Food Defense Plan requirement known as “Intentional adulteration”.

Then we’ll review the document templates that are available to participants to build your own local plan.  Some new ones will be added to help with managing your supply chain and work instructions.

You are also encouraged to bring your “work in progress” Food Safety Plan.  There will be a sign-up sheet with times available to meet one-on-one with Chris to review your documents and discuss any situations unique to your plant.

Participants will receive electronic copies of all the presentation materials, sample forms, and templates.
