The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) places new requirements on food manufacturers, processors, growers and importers. To assist organizations, NSF developed a free online tool to determine compliance readiness, and indentify areas needing improvement.
Backed by 70 years of food safety experience, NSF International's food safety programs can help you understand, prepare for and comply with the anticipated FSMA regulations via auditing, certification, training, analysis and consultation services.
