UNH Cooperative Extension's FSMA team developed an online tool to help produce farms determine if they need comply with the Produce Safety Rule of FSMA.  It is based on a similar tool developed in Vermont.  Structured like a survey, it asks you a series of questions.  Based on your answers, the tool will tell you where you most likely fall under the rule.  It can also be used to predict how your compliance may change if you make changes to your business model.

In addition to using this tool, we strongly recommend you also visit two other resources created to help producers determine where they fall under the Produce Safety Rule.  The three tools are meant to be used together.  If you do not recieve the same answer from all three tools, please contact a member of the FSMA team.
