FSMA Sanitary Transportation rule finalized

FSMA Sanitary Transportation rule finalized

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration have finalized and approved the new Sanitary Transportation rule, that will enforce the sanitary transportation of human and animal food by rail and motor vehicles within the United States.

Specifically, the proposed rule establishes requirements for vehicles and transportation equipment, transportation operations, information exchange, training, records, and waivers. This rule applies to shippers, receivers, and carriers who transport food within the United States.

The new rule will ensure that proper practices for the safe storage, refrigeration and protection of food during transport, as well as the thorough cleaning of vehicles between loads to prevent cross-contamination, are continually observed.

If you want to know the exact rules, access the Sanitary Transportation Final Rule fact sheet or find more information on the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act on the FDA website.
