Farm Processing Key Rules Produce Safety Rule Preventive controls rule, Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP), Traceability (still in pilot mode) Degree of Impact Medium High Impact on value chain participants • Monitoring water quality (biological and chemical contaminants) to ensure safe agricultural irrigation • Worker training and health hygiene • Field intrusion by domesticated animals • Ensure food contact equipment do not harbor contaminants • Ensure food contact equipment can be cleaned appropriately Transportation Retailing Preventive controls rule, Traceability (still in pilot mode) Preventive controls rule, Traceability (still in pilot mode) Medium Low • Ensure sanitary transportation of food to avoid microbial contamination or growth during transportation Fork Not Impacted No Impact • Retailers to report cases of contaminated food to the FDA • FDA can mandatorily recall products Source: Frost & Sullivan, FDA 4
