Food and Drug Administration (United States Department of Agriculture).
Training the food industry is critical to the success of the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA), part of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). To help facilitate training, FDA, together with United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), has funded a network of public and private partners in state, federal, tribal and international governments, industry, and academia for the development and delivery of training. The FSMA Collaborative Training Forum was established to provide a space for dialogue, information-sharing, alignment and collaboration for all those providing FSMA training. While training is the responsibility of the food industry, FDA, USDA, and its funded partners are committed to making FSMA training accessible and comprehensive, thereby helping the food industry to comply with the FSMA rules.
