Video: Understanding the FDA Sanitary Transportation Regulations


The transportation of food plays a major role in the food safety. Keeping the food at the right temperature and the time it takes to deliver your final food product are only a few things that you have to keep in mind. If you plan the logistics correctly, transporting your food can save not only the reputation of your company but also of the lives of your consumers.

Quick Summary of Understanding the FDA Sanitary Transportation Regulations Web Seminar

FDA will publish Sanitary Transportation Regulations based on the Food Safety Modernization Act in March 2016. While the scope of these regulations is limited to certain food types, the information is important for all transportation operations seeking to preserve the quality of freight. It is the transportation professional’s responsibility to communicate clearly with the shipper and receiver and protect freight while it is under their control. This webinar will include an overview of the new regulations as well as recommendations on how to meet the 4-hour training requirements for carriers. Topics in this webinar include:

  • The types of hazards that can occur
  • Expected control measures pre-trip, in transit and post-trip
  • Sanitation, maintenance and pest control requirements
  • Incident management
  • Security and Defense requirements
  • Regulatory requirements for records and communication
