Technical Presentation 7: Getting Ready for Traceability Record-keeping: FSMA 204 Proposed Rule

Back to Schedule

In November 2022, the FDA will finalize the proposed rule for enhanced traceability recordkeeping. Companies will be required to capture additional information about the products they make, move, or buy. What does this mean for your company and how can you prepare for the proposal? Section 204 of the Food Safety Modernization Act instructs the FDA to develop additional recordkeeping requirements for certain foods. At the core of this proposal is a requirement for those who manufacture, process, pack or hold foods on the Food Traceability List to establish and maintain records with enhanced traceability data. Learn how you can enable your company through the digitization and capture of data required for this proposed rule. Understand how GS1 Standards can enable full chain traceability and hear how companies are using standards today to realize this vision. This work cannot be done in a silo – learn how a standards- based approach will enable you, and your trading partners to collect and share this information.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understanding what data your company is responsible for collecting
  2. Determining your role in the supply chain
  3. Evaluating your products and ingredients on the FDA’s Food Traceability List (FTL)
