August Edition: Get Your FSMA Compliance Started with Food Safety Training for Carriers, Brokers & Shippers

Iron Apple Newsletter – Featured Content: When becoming FSMA compliant, one of the first steps we recommend is to have your team meet the training requirements. Knowledge and training helps put FSMA requirements into perspective, giving your team a better understanding of what is required under FSMA and how it will affect your business and responsibilities when transporting food or food ingredients.

The Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food Rule (STAHF / STF) of FSMA requires that carriers provide awareness training to all employees involved in the sanitary transportation of food products. This training should consist of general awareness of potential food safety issues that may arise during the movement of food loads and basic sanitary transportation practices to address these potential issues.

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.
