Hi. We are currently reviewing our traceability program. I am aware that SQF requires a one-up, one-back traceability for incoming  ingredients and primary packaging items and for outgoing finished products. I believe the 2002 BioTerrorism Act does so as well. Is this also defined as a requirement in FSMA?

The bioterrorism act included the requirements for one forward one back. FSMA only added the requirement for a written recall plan detailing that your firm needs to have a notification plan in place and verification checks ready to go.
