SAN RAFAEL, CA--(Marketwired - August 19, 2014) - SafetyChain Software, leaders in Food Safety Chain Management Systems that Automate, Streamline & Improve FSQA™, is pleased to announce a new topic for its August 29, FSMA Friday™: "GFSI and FSMA - Alignment and Gaps." Also announced is an updated FSMA Fridays schedule for the remainder of 2014.
The popular monthly series, which now has more than 2,000 ongoing registrants, features FSMA icon Dr. David Acheson and The Acheson Group's food safety team, who address pre-submitted, and live questions from the audience, on a schedule of topics related to the Food Safety Modernization Act. FSMA Friday topics are frequently updated as FDA issues new revisions of proposed rules and other FSMA updates to ensure timely, relevant information to help the food and beverage industry prepare for compliance with this major food safety legislation.
"We are very excited to add the GFSI alignment topic to our FSMA Friday schedule. As we get closer to FSMA's second round of proposed rules and deadlines for compliance, more and more companies are looking to GFSI certification as a way to prepare," said Barbara Levin, SafetyChain SVP and co-founder. "This will be an important forum for learning more about how GFSI aligns with FSMA," she added.
