What Will the FSMA Mandate Mean for Your Maintenance Operations?

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has worked to change the regulatory landscape of the food and beverage industry. With FSMA, the power of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) greatly expanded, resulting in more rigorous compliance standards for food manufacturers and processors.
The FSMA rules enforces safety standards for farms, increases accountability for importers, and establishes a program for auditors to conduct food safety audits of international food facilitates. In a recent update from November 2016, the FDA issued final guidance for the “Voluntary Qualified Importer Program.” Now, more than ever, it is nearly impossible to comply to standards without a powerful CMMS system to back up your team.
That’s where eMaint comes in. “With eMaint, auditors can log in directly to enter work orders and check on status, and we’re able to easily accommodate special requests, like flagging temporary repairs,” says Matt H., Director of Engineering & Maintenance, Silver Spring Foods. Silver Spring, the world’s largest horseradish producer, experienced improved inventory accuracy and efficiency after implementing eMaint’s CMMS solution.
