United States Issues Draft Guidance Regarding Qualified Facilities under Food Safety Modernization Act

June 17, 2016

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released a draft guidance document to assist qualified facilities with hazard analysis and risk-based preventive control compliance.

The draft guidance takes the form of an FAQ document and addresses how to determine whether a business meets the definition of a “qualified facility,” and contains practical and detailed advice with respect to specific questions and issues that facilities may confront as they plan for compliance.

The FDA will be accepting comments on the draft guidance until November 14, 2016.
