FSMA Compliance Training
The Federal Department of Agriculture’s (“FDA”) Sanitary Transportation Rule (“STF”) requires covered rail and motor vehicle carriers to provide food safety training to staff engaged in food transportation operations. This requirement applies when the carrier and shipper have agreed in a written contract that the carrier is responsible, in whole or in part, for the sanitary conditions during transportation. Such carriers are required to establish and maintain records documenting the training of operations personnel. PLM offers a training platform that will facilitate its customers’ compliance with applicable government regulations and keep them at the forefront of changing industry standards and regulatory compliance.
