Food Safety Modernization Act

Cost-effective Compliance

FSMA impacts every level of the food supply chain; retailers, suppliers, distributors, processors, packagers, growers, animal feed — if you are required to register with the FDA, you need to be aware of the requirements of the FSMA.


The FSMA was signed into law in 2011. Compliance deadlines for larger establishments went into effect in 2016, and smaller companies have through 2017 and 2018 to comply with the various regulations. Non-compliance may disrupt a business because clients and suppliers will seek out FSMA-compliant competitors. Failing the mandated inspections and testings could result in FDA fines and product recalls.


FSMA compliance can be a complicated process. Not only can CITEC audit and verify compliance, we can help businesses establish quality systems to meet the standards, or provide the necessary paperwork for clients and subcontractors up and down the supply chain.
