Why Should You Attend:
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers establishment inspection one of its prime enforcement tools. Clearly, this is an important way of determining whether or not food firms are in compliance with the FDA's law and regulations. Many of the regulatory actions FDA takes against food firms are based on FDA's findings during inspections.
This online training will begin with an overview of the FDA inspection program, followed by outlining inspection goals, inspection process and how the inspection is conducted. This session will further discuss the key factors for preparing for a successful inspection and will provide attendees with a checklist that FDA would use when inspecting your food facility. Attendees can also use this checklist to ensure inspection readiness in their plant.
The final session of this webinar will explain FDA’s program for foreign food facility inspections, from selection of facilities for inspection to how FDA works with local authorities to what to expect if an inspection has problems.

About 48 million people (1 in 6 Americans) get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized, and 3,000 die each year from foodborne diseases, according to recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. This is a significant public health burden that is largely preventable.
The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), enables FDA to better protect public health by strengthening the food safety system. It recognizes that preventive control standards improve food safety only to the extent that producers and processors comply with them. Therefore, it will be necessary for FDA to provide oversight, ensure compliance with requirements and respond effectively when problems emerge.
