Iron Apple Releases a Spanish Version of their Web Based Food Safety Training for Carriers
Record User Registration for the Iron Apple Training Platform and Certification in Advance of April 6, 2017 Deadline.
With just over 45 working days remaining until enforcement begins for one of FSMA’s rules to begin (Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food Rule), this is putting a lot of pressure on the carriers to have their food transport operations compliant with new regulations. If your shipper hasn’t already asked that a food safety program be put into place, the FDA will come knocking shortly after the April 6, 2017 deadline. Similar to processing facilities, the FDA may schedule inspections at transportation facilities to review records, procedures and to verify compliance that includes training and sanitation.
Iron Apple has developed a food safety solution for carriers transporting food or food ingredients to meet these new regulations. The program is a digital solution that provides a step by step guide for the company to develop and implement their food safety plan. This solution will give you everything you need to meet shipper and government requirements when it comes to the safe handling of food.
