LEGAL UPDATE: FDA issues final rule and guidance on records access as required by the Food Safety Modernization Act

By: T.H. Lyda

April 3, 2014 — Today the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced the adoption of the interim final rule “Establishment, Maintenance, and Availability of Records: Amendment to Record Availability Requirements,” affirming the change to FDA’s record access as required by the Food Safety Modernization Act. This final rule expands the FDA’s access to records not only related to suspect foods but to those associated with food similarly compromised or potentially exposed to the same risks as the suspect food.
