Please save the date for the Northwest Regional virtual meeting on the Proposed Changes to the Agricultural Water Requirements in the Produce Safety Rule - hosted by NASDA and the Washington State Department of Agriculture.

The FDA is proposing to revise certain pre-harvest agricultural water requirements for covered produce (other than sprouts) in Subpart E of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule, this does not include potatoes. This proposal, if finalized, would replace the pre-harvest microbial quality criteria and testing requirements for such produce in the Produce Safety Rule with requirements for systems-based pre-harvest agricultural water assessments that covered farms would use for hazard identification and risk management decision-making purposes. As part of the assessment, the farms would be required to evaluate the following factors to identify conditions that would be reasonably likely to introduce known or reasonably foreseeable hazards into or onto produce or food contact surfaces.

No registration required – first come, first served.
