Current food Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) are published in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 110 (21 CFR 110) from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). CGMPs apply to every food processing operation, and can serve as one basis for FDA inspections. Compliance can have a major impact on your business.
This checklist will help you to evaluate and spot-check your compliance with some of the key requirements of 21 CFR 110. Reasons to ensure compliance are many:
- An FDA inspection may occur at any time, and verifying compliance prepares your operation
- Requirements from FSMA may increase, so compliance with current regulation is a good foundation for your business
- CGMPs exist to protect the integrity of the nation’s food supply, and compliance shows consumers that your business places the highest importance on food safety
