FSMA Audits

FSMA audits from SGS – demonstrate compliance with the new FDA legislation.

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is considered to be the most sweeping reform of US food safety laws in more than 70 years. Unlike previous food safety regulations, the FSMA focuses on preventing contamination and requires organizations in the food industry to ensure safe practices throughout the supply chain. Our FSMA audits will help to ensure that your company meets the new standards, so you can become compliant with US FDA requirements.

Why choose FSMA audits from SGS?

We provide comprehensive audits that can be used as FSMA pre-assessments, gap audits or supplier audits, so you can be sure to meet the requirements for certification. Tailored to meet each company’s specific needs, our audits:

  • Are adapted to each site based on facility size, certification status and other criteria
  • Focus on specific requirements not already covered in the company’s food safety systems
  • Can integrate additional client requirements as well as hazard-specific preventive controls

While we provide stand-alone audits, we can streamline the audit and certification process by:

  • Conducting FSMA audits alongside food certification audits
  • Repeating audits for all suppliers of a company, using the same audit criteria

Our FSMA audits are upgradable, in preparation for the much-anticipated FSMA certification program for foreign suppliers.
