Temperature Monitoring Rules are Coming

By |

CargoDataLogoBy Cargo Data
The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Final Rule for Sanitary Transportation for Human and Animal Food  was released in late March 2016.
Industry leaders have been working with regulators to understand how enforcement will be approached.  The following points will most likely characterize regulatory enforcement:
1) Enforcement for of the Sanitary Transportation requirements will begin 12 months from release of the Final Rule for large firms.   This means enforcement will begin March 2017 for many large perishables handlers.  Enforcement for smaller firms will begin March 2018.
2) Inspectors will not generally be interested in reviewing reams (or gigabytes!) of data related to in-transit temperatures, product accept/reject reports, or other detailed information.  Instead:
3) Compliance will likely be considered satisfactory when subject firms can demonstrate they have developed and implemented systems which satisfy the requirements of FSMA.  
For example:  Since FSMA mandates that all authorized individuals in the supply chain (shippers, carriers, Receivers) must remove suspected adulterated or abused products from the supply chain, can each participant demonstrate its system supports such action?
Cargo Data recommends Lightning NFC as a vital element of your new FSMA compliance program.  The Lightning NFC system is designed specifically to provide each participant in the cold chain with immediate temperature data review and automatically archives the data to the Cloud.   Lightning NFC supports FSMA by making it easy to check cold chain integrity and to make informed decisions about product safety.
Lightning NFC temperature recorders can be ordered online.

CargoDataBy Cargo Data

The Problem:  When a perishable load arrives too warm or too cold, the Receiver is typically required to print, email, and/or fax temperature charts to buyers, suppliers, carriers, QA, and accounting departments. Sometimes, Receivers get busy, and this whole process gets delayed.

The Solution:  Cargo Data’s free UpLink feature allows any interested party to view temperature recorder data within mere moments of arrival at the Receiving Dock with NO additional staff input. This system supports ALL models and versions of Cargo Data temperature recorders.  Receivers can forever be done with distributing temp charts!  UpLink also provides permanent temperature data archiving compliance for upcoming FSMA section 1.906 (d) regulations.
