The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law on January 4, 2011. FSMA is the largest change in food safety law since the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act was first passed in 1938.

FSMA seeks to 1) Prevent foodborne illness; 2) Improve inspection, compliance, and response; 3) Improve safety of imported foods and; 4) Improve miscellaneous provisions and enhance partnerships.

This Checklist focuses on manufacturers of human food. It will help you organize your materials and assess your current food safety preparedness. The Checklist is NOT itself a plan; it is only an assessment tool to assist in the development of your own plan.

This Checklist has four main parts: 1) Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls (21 CFR Part 117 Subpart C); 2) Current Good Manufacturing Practices (21 CFR Part 117 Subpart B); 3) Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food (21 CFR Part 1 Subpart O); and 4) Registration of Food Facilities (21 CFR Part 1 Subpart H).

It is recommended to do one part at a time and collect/list documentation in each part as you go. If the answer to a question is no, put no; then this will be an area to improve. This checklist is for your use only; it is not a regulatory compliance program.
