Welcome to NSAC’s Food Safety Modernization Act Resource Center

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the first major overhaul of our nation’s food safety practices since 1938, and it includes new regulations for produce farms and for facilities that process food for people to eat. FSMA represents some big changes to our food system, which is why NSAC has focused significant advocacy efforts on FSMA since it was a bill first being considered in Congress, through the Food and Drug Administration’s rulemaking process, and – now that the rules are finalized – on implementation.

NSAC remains committed to not only ensuring that implementation of these news rules is done in a way that avoids any adverse impacts to our nation’s farmers and local and regional food systems, but also supporting farmers and food enterprises in obtaining the information and resources they need to maintain and grow their businesses while minimizing food safety risks.
