NSAC Flowchart: FSMA Produce Safety Rule

The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition has put together a concise flowchart designed to help growers determine whether or not the Produce Safety Rule of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) applies to their farm.

Am I affected by new Food Safety Rules? A Flowchart for Farmers and Food Businesses

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.  These tools are meant to be used as a set.  If you do not receive the same answer from each resource, please contact a member of the FSMA team.

FSMA Produce Safety Rule: Am I Covered? A short video that outlines the rule and helps growers answer the question, "Am I covered and what do I need to do if I am?"

FSMA Produce Safety Rule: Do I Need to Comply? An online survey tool that asks a series of questions about your business, and based on your answers, tells you if and where your business likely falls under the rule.
