Event Description

April 29, Tuesday 10:00 AM PDT | 01:00 PM EDT

This food safety webinar will provide an overview of the proposed rules for the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food and costs associated with implementation. The session is intended to provide early review if non-shelf stable food is offered for or enters interstate commerce by shippers, receivers, carriers, exporters, importers, trucking, oceangoing vessels, rail, and air.

Why Should You Attend:

The FDA estimates that the proposed rules for the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food will impact over 80,000 food carriers and shippers at an estimated $2000 initial cost to each company. The rules are based on earlier legal food transportation laws but include significant proposed changes to container sanitation, record keeping, temperature monitoring, import/export, drivers, and other legal requirements that must be included as liability contracts between carriers and shippers. There are other significant new issues that are present in the proposed rules.

Shippers and carriers that import or move perishable food for consumption in the United States must attend this webinar in order to begin preparing their companies to meet final food safety transportation rules. Find out what and who are covered and not covered by these rules. Take a proactive position to begin establishing required shipper-carrier contractual requirements and begin the journey to implementation and compliance. In addition to providing an overview of the proposed rules and costs for implementation, we will also address some of the planning steps that can be put in place now in order to defray the upcoming added costs of implementation.
