EXPORT FOOD TO THE US IN COMPLIANCE WITH THE LAW
Agri-food companies that export or wish to export to the USA must comply with the requirements established by the new Food Safety Modernization Law (FSMA). The FSMA establishes a set of minimum standards based on preventive controls, risk analysis and food safety. Starting in September 2017, companies that do not align their manuals to new requirements will not be able to export to the United States. The new Law requires a set of documents based on US federal legislation to be developed and / or supervised by a PCQI (Accredited Person in Preventive Controls)
