The passage of the FDA <strong>Food</strong> Safety Modernization Act transforms FDA’s food safety program by<br />

providing it with new public health mandates and enhanced tools for ensuring the safety of the food<br />

supply in the 21st Century. The central purpose of the new law is to better protect public health by<br />

preventing food safety problems, rather than primarily reacting to problems after they occur.<br />

Preventive controls<br />

FDA has a legislative mandate to require comprehensive, prevention-based controls.<br />

• Hazard analysis, controls, corrective actions<br />

• Produce safety standards<br />

Inspection and Compliance<br />

The legislation recognizes that effective, efficient, risk-based inspection is an important means of<br />

holding industry accountable for their responsibility to produce safe products.<br />

Imported <strong>Food</strong> Safety<br />

The legislation provides significant enhancements to FDA’s ability to achieve greater oversight of the<br />

food products coming into the United States from other countries.<br />

• Foreign supplier verification programs<br />

• Foreign facility inspection authority<br />

• Import certification authority<br />

• Qualified voluntary importer program<br />

Enhanced Partnerships<br />

The legislation recognizes the importance of strengthening existing collaboration among all food<br />

safety agencies – Federal, state, local, territorial, tribal, and foreign – to achieve FDA public health goals. It<br />

also recognizes the importance of building the capacity and training of state, local, territorial and tribal<br />

food safety programs as well as building labs and food safety programs, and other food safety activities.<br />

Implementation Timeline<br />

for food processors<br />


Organized in 1914, the <strong>Northwest</strong> <strong>Food</strong> <strong>Processors</strong> Association (NWFPA) represents the complex, varied<br />

interests of food processors in Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. NWFPA is headquartered in Portland,<br />

Oregon, and has a current membership roster of over 450 member companies. Among these members,<br />

about 80 food processors operating over 200 production facilities throughout the Pacific <strong>Northwest</strong>.<br />

Changing to reflect the diverse background of food firms throughout the region, the Association’s<br />

membership has expanded over the past several years to include seafood, poultry, dairy, bakeries,<br />

specialty and fresh-cut.<br />
