A draft guidance documentrecently published by FDA for public comment, describes changes being contemplated for the procedures that manufacturers of acidified foods and low-acid 2541z foods prospectively will use to submit information about the processes they use to ensure that the foods they produce are safe for consumers. The draft guidance addresses:. As part of this planned modernization, FDA would stop firm Form FDA a and Form FDA c to fom processing information from manufacturers, and begin using forms that are specific to different industry manufacturing processes.
In the future, acidified and torm canned food manufacturers likely will be able to submit one or more of the process filing forms listed below, depending on the processing methods being used:. The new forms would be available in paper and electronic which mirror the paper formats. The new forms are intended to be easier to use and to reduce confusion about the type of information FDA needs from a manufacturer to evaluate the adequacy of its processes. This, in turn, reportedly would enable FDA to better ensure the safety of acidified and low-acid canned foods.
Before FDA begins using the new forms, stakeholders reportedly will have two opportunities to comment on them.
Until the information in the draft guidance is finalized and the new forms are made available for 2541q officially, manufacturers of acidified and low-acid canned foods must continue to submit establishment registrations and process filings using the procedures, forms, and guidance that are currently in effect.
