FEMA in partnership with ASTA invite you to register for the joint FEMA/ASTA Webinar on Thursday, May 30, 2013.

Join food safety expert Maile Gradison Hermida of Hogan Lovells to learn more about how to keep good records to help you prepare for FSMA.

Recordkeeping is a critical component of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) because the law greatly increases FDA’s access to your records during inspections. These new obligations could have a significant impact on your day-to-day operations. Do you know the recordkeeping requirements under FSMA? What will you have to show FDA inspectors when they inspect your facility? Learn about the big changes in store. We will explain how to get your records ready for FSMA and tips for record creation.
