Your business must comply with the FDA Food Traceability Compliance rule. Persons in charge of your compliance have to be trained in keeping records along the entire food supply chain, they must keep data on all communication with the entities your food operation does business with, whether located in the United States or overseas. These documents have to be readily available for the FDA.
At Validation World, we recommend you begin this process just as soon as possible under our guidance. This will prepare your team to understand and implement the nuts and bolts of compliance in terms of the data which needs to be generated and its filing with the FDA, thus assuring your day to day operation runs smoothly without risk of disruption to the supply chain.
