The goal of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is to revolutionize the food safety system by preventing foodborne illness, rather than just responding to it after it happens. The FDA is enforcing these rules through routine random inspections at food manufacturing sites and the establishment of environmental monitoring programs in food facilities. Food testing laboratories can meet these FSMA requirements by using a LIMS for food safety, to monitor and record samples, tests, and results. A Food LIMS can provide simplification and automation for increased accuracy and reassurance in a food testing laboratory, to establish a successful environmental monitoring process and best practices. The talk delineates the role of a LIMS in driving automation & enabling food testing laboratories to meet FSMA requirements with ease.
