The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) was signed into law on January 4, 2011 in response to changes in the global food system. Introduced by the FDA, its purpose is to better protect public health by strengthening the food safety system with a focus on preventing food safety problems and achieving higher rates of compliance with prevention and risk-based food safety standards.
FSMA also holds imported foods to the same standards as domestic foods and directs the FDA to build an integrated national food safety system in partnership with state and local authorities.   
(Last updated April 1, 2019)
FDA has finalized seven major rules to implement FSMA, recognizing that ensuring the safety of the food supply is a shared responsibility among many different points in the global supply chain for both human and animal food. The FSMA rules are designed to make clear specific actions that must be taken to prevent contamination.
