Back to Package

On November 21, 2022, the United States Food and Drug Administration (U.S. FDA) introduced new recordkeeping requirements for the food industry. More commonly known as the Food Safety Modernization Act or FSMA 204, the implementation of the “Final Rule” has a compliance deadline of January 2026. In this first digital of our four-part series, you will get answers to:

  • Is my business impacted and how? Are my products/commodities on the Food Traceability List?
  • Why do I need Traceability Lot Codes, Key Data Elements, and Critical Tracking Events?
  • Can applying the GS1 System of Standards help meet FSMA 204 requirements?
  • How are others in my industry working together to share traceability data?

Join Hilary Thesmar, Chief Science Officer, FMI, and Marshall Keener, Director, Community Engagement, Government Affairs, GS1 US, as they explain the foundational concepts you need to understand to meet the recordkeeping requirements of FSMA Rule 204.
