FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) LogoSigned into law in 2011, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) reflects how essential a safe food supply is to the health and well-being of society.

We’ve designed these pages to help you understand the provisions of the FSMA, including the Produce Safety Rule (21 CFR Part 112) and Preventive Controls for Human Foods Rule (21 CFR Part 117).

These rules are specifically geared toward those who grow, harvest, and pack produce for sale, with the goal of improving the safety of food for all Americans.
