July Edition: Prepare for Compliance Monitoring and Insurance with New FSMA Compliance Laws

The new FSMA Sanitary Transportation of Food (STF) Rule adds new areas of accountability and food safety responsibilities throughout the food supply chain, from shippers, brokers, to carriers, and warehouses. In addition, this new rule allows transfer of certain responsibilities between covered parties and therefore failing to keep FSMA in mind when negotiating agreements with shippers, brokers, and carriers could be a nightmare- from both a legal and insurability perspective.
