sara: Good Morning from Seattle
kaveh: hello every one
Larbi: foreign food safety agency are responsible for the verification of exporters
Ernesto: What is the answer?
Karm Elwany: Some of them are aware
Ernesto: ty Karm
Janice Mabey: so seafood is still subject to the same rules as before?
Laura: what about further processing? what is the defintion of this exception
Klodian: what about the cans and acidified foods, are those exempted?
Edwin: If a grain such as wheat, canola, beans, peas, lentils, soybeans are shipped into the US for further processing (cleaning, packaging) is it exempt?
anika: are suppliers from foreign suppliers expected to follow HARPC or FSMA as well? We are exported to U.S. Are our suppliers expected to be HARPC compliant as well?
Edwin: What is the difference between HARPC and HACCP?
: Hello, I'm ML Chillida
Demo: You can Google a lot of these questions
Wayne Chen: Hazard Analysis and Risk-based Preventive Controls =HARPC
Jeff: hazard analysis exceptions - what about frozen vegetables?
Teresa: The FDA required hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP) for juice and seafood, and the USDA for meat and poultry. The Food Safety Modernization Act’s (FSMA) proposed Preventive Controls rule for Human Food requires a written Food Safety Plan (FSP) be developed using the hazard analysis risk-
Alicia: Interesting to hear that it now requires evaluation for economically motivated adulteration. I've lived in China 6.5+ years, where that is a major problem.
Teresa: FSP) be developed using the hazard analysis risk-based preventive control (HARPC) approach. A preventive approach to food safety is nothing new
kaveh: what is the answer?
Simon Timperley: answer to what kaveh?
Pamela: if my supplier is SQF certified, does it comply with the FSVP?
anika: who or what certifying body 'qualifies' an individual?
Christopher: Pamela: Not necessarily...there are different requirements under FSVP than a risk analysis within SQF may contain.
Karm Elwany: Do you have hazard analysis guidelines fix for fresh fruits and juices or examples how to conduct
Sabina: would like to know the answer to Pamela's Question
Smita: Can a questionnaire be sent that covers food safety issues to answer and return for evaluation? do US importer need to go and do facility audit?
MUHAMMAD HASSAN SHAHZAD: Hi whether I as third party auditor in mi country could help clients I meeting the fsma Rae by audit services or only fda auditor cn do this.
Narongchai: Pamela, I think now FDA does not recognize any 3rd certification.
Epitacio: Awareness is growing a rapid pace nowadays.
Fei: Are there Are there some third-party companies certified to do risk-base hazard analysis for impliers?some third-party companies certified to do risk-base hazard analysis for importers?
Vickie: If a supplier is on an Import Alert "Green List", such as soft cheese from France, can that serve as proof of a supplier evaluation and of that supplier as being compliant?
anika: what is the diference between FSVP and VQIP?
Sabina: Thanks Christopher
Teresa: The FSP using the HARPC approach is a new preventive framework designed to identify specific hazards in addition to traditional HACCP critical control points (CCPs) for processing and take appropriate steps to counter the hazard before a food-safety event occurs.
Gary: We have a LOT of suppliers. We will need to utilize third party auditors in some cases. What auditing companies are approved by the FDA?
jacqueline Scott-Brown: Few of them, they will have to subcontract this function
Christopher: But they all aren't yet because the rules aren't all finalized
Emma Fonseca: Hello
Klodian: in a certain way they should comply, SQF 2.4.1
Emma Fonseca: From México
MUHAMMAD HASSAN SHAHZAD: Fssc to launch comparison with fsma guidance doc on its web soon. Regards hassan from Pakistan
Karm Elwany: Tessa do you have guidelines for hapc
Sabina: SQF should be coming out with editiod 8 this year to cover FSVP as per a friend at Eurofins
Harry: In EU, BRC (and also IFS, ISO 22000), set ip to fulfuill all relevant EU food regulations,. is NOT recognised by the EU food autorities.
Brian: SQF has issued a comparison w/FSMA guidance document, too
Christopher: SQF 7.2 2.3 deals with it a little more, with a risk analysis, but it's not clear cut.
christine: Does FSVP apply to food contacts substances (i.e. resins/films used to manufacture flexible/plastic packaging?)
Joven: Are GFSI recognized scheme comply on the requirements of the FSMA?
Christopher: See the white paper conducted by the Acheson Group on SQFI.com
Harry: As Mr Hans Bueger, top official of the Dutch NVWA wrote me: certificates from third countries... untrustworthy till even.. FRAUD
Teresa: No Karm I Don't have but I have some aricles that explain it.
Karm Elwany: Teresa please let me know the link or forward copy
Gary: He's breaking up a bit...
Teresa: Karm try http://www.harpc.com...c-requirements/
sara: Breaking up, trouble with the sound
Ernesto: Some of the audio has issues. Part of what he is saying stops. Anyone having this issue?
Fei: jammed audio, even though refreshed twice
jacqueline Scott-Brown: Yes
Bev: Ernesto....yes, I have the same audio issues
rani gandha: yes
Gary: If Radiological and EMA is added to my HACCP plan, will that suffice as a HARPC/HACCP plan?
sara: yes, tried reconnecting and listening on another device
Ernesto: thank you everyone
Christopher: Gary it might...it depends on how well you define the preventative controls in your current HACCP plan.
Narongchai: Gary, fSMA required the control of whole supply chain, not only in the process. I think
Esther: What about the qualification of the people doing the verification? Do they need an official training? Any kind of approval? Could it be done by a food consultant? Has he/she to be from USA? And…if the foreign food establishment is already approved by USA authorities, is verification still necessary

Karm Elwany: If I attended such a session then I will be certified or qualified
Novita: would it be handled differently if the importer is also a food manufacturer in the US?
Brian: A critical definition that is stunningly ambiguous, from what I've seen so far...?
Veronica: For the risk assessment activity - having the HACCP plan on file from the supplier will suffice as risk assesment or should we have an 'audit' of the process on file in addition to the one perform as verification

MUHAMMAD HASSAN SHAHZAD: 30
Michael Govender: recall
Vickie: So the Unique ID is the ID of the importer, including the number of the consignee, agent? Is this then the equivalent of the license that was used to import the product? Still trying to absolutely understand how the importer is determined. Also assume it is based on each entry at port?
Fei: Thank you!

Karm Elwany: Sound is not good
Brian: I am only hearing every 3rd word...
Michael Govender: 15 days
Michelle: this is hard to follow I keep losing sound
Cheryl: Intermittent sound. Very difficult to follow
Shani: If you import from exporters that pack fruit/vegetables, must you check all the growers (could be hundreds), or rely on gap certifications obtained by the exporters for their operations? The definition could be interpreted several ways.
