Confused about what records you are required to keep for compliance with the new federal Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA)? Not sure how those records overlap with what you are already doing for your organic certification? Join the CCOF Foundation, Community Alliance with Family Farmers and the Farmers Guild (CAFF/FG) for a webinar on June 18 that clearly explains what records are required for produce farms that must fully comply with FSMA and how those records align with USDA National Organic Program recordkeeping requirements.
Farms that must fully comply with the FSMA Produce Safety Rule are required to keep written records related to:
- Personnel qualifications and training
- Agricultural water
- Biological soil amendments of animal origin (i.e., manure)
- Equipment, tools, buildings, and sanitation
Our webinar presenter, Kali Feiereisel, food safety specialist at CAFF/FG, will walk webinar participants through the specifics of each of the required food safety record categories mentioned above. Then, learn how these records compare to the records that organic farms keep to meet USDA regulations for certified organic crop production. Find out what food safety records you may already have and what new recordkeeping systems you may need to put in place to meet FSMA requirements.
