FDA Required Carrier Compliance Training

The final rules on the Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Foods establish training requirements for all carrier personnel engaged in food transportation operations.   Training certificates are required for these topics:

  1. Responsibilities of the carrier under the final rules
  2. Awareness of potential food safety problems that may occur during food transportation
  3. Basic sanitary transportation practices to address those potential problems

This training is not “maybe” training but is REQUIRED for all personnel engaged in transportation operations upon hiring and as needed thereafter.

This required training is now offered by the Sanitary Cold Chain and is available as webinars or in download packages for use with your employees.  Each session is approximately one hour long.

The FDA defines a carrier as a “person who owns, leases, or is otherwise ultimately responsible for the use of a motor vehicle or rail vehicle to transport food. The carrier is responsible for all functions assigned to a carrier in this sub-part even if they are performed by other persons, such as a driver that is employed or contracted by a trucking firm. A carrier may also be a receiver or a shipper if the person also performs the functions of those respective persons as defined in this sub-part.” 

The new law was published on April 6, 1016, which mean there is little time left for perishable food carrier operations to provide this required, certificated training to all personnel.

Prepare to Comply With the FDA FSMA Sanitary Food Transportation Regulations
The Sanitary Cold Chain system is designed to help your farm, distribution, processing, packing, retail or restaurant operation establish new compliance logistics controls for sanitation, temperature and traceability  for food carrying trucks and trailers, rail cars and transportation equipment.  The new FSMA rules will apply to carriers, shippers, and receivers involved in perishable food transportation.  Logistics requirements for all shipments of perishable foods by dairy, meat, poultry, eggs, fish, and other products shipped as imports, intrastate or interstate are impacted.

The new FDA FSMA rules on the sanitary transportation of human and animal foods cover trucks, trailers, rail cars, imported foods, food operations and food transportation equipment for perishables not completely enclosed by a container.  Compliance requires that valid preventive controls must be established and implemented to prove that your operations meet FSMA rules requirements.

The Sanitary Cold Chain provides the assessment, training, audits and certification to avoid prosecution and to meet the new rules.

Maintain Records to Meet the FSMA Rule Requirements

Guide to Food Safety and Quality During Transportation:  

Controls, Standards and Practices  

by Dr. John M Ryan.

The book, published by Elsevier Press, includes FDA and USDA guidance information, standards and certification, and food safety and quality planning procedures to establish a foundation for transportation system prevention, implementation, standardisation, measurement and improvement.

Guide to Food Safety and Quality During Transportation provides a sound foundation for the improvement of the transportation sector responsible for the movement of food. While food safety agencies have been focused on producer, processor, retail, and restaurant food safety, the industry that moves the food has been largely overlooked. Ensuring trucks and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected, proper maintenance of refrigeration temperatures during transport, and avoiding paperwork delays are all areas of concern. Lack of government oversight has resulted in multiple, non-standardized approaches to food safety that are inspection-dependent,” the publisher says.

“This book focuses specifically on the food movers normally overlooked by today’s food safety auditors, compliance schemes, government agencies, quality control personnel, and transportation executives. It outlines delivery control solutions and provides basic standards designed to protect the transportation industry, as well as addressing problems associated with food transportation and practical solutions that are focused on container sanitation and traceability food safety and quality needs.”

The book is written for those involved in ensuring the safe transport of food commodities, including supply chain management, food safety management and quality management personnel.

If you transport or cause food to be transported, standardizing and controlling transportation processes in order to prevent food adulteration is critical. Your company must have a consistent ability to meet customer and legal food safety compliance requirements.  Containers, bins, trays, trailers, tankers, rail cars, reefers, ground and air pallets and other food carrying containers for cleanliness, temperature control, traceability and management record keeping in order to meet U.S. and international food transportation requirements.

It is clear that food container tracking, sanitation, temperature and humidity control and record keeping are becoming supply chain issues requiring increased attention across all company locations. 

Introduce your logistics professionals to newly evolving standards and to help them to develop a customized system that will meet today’s logistics needs, satisfy your customer’s food safety requirements and ready your food transportation processes for upcoming legal requirements.
