FDA announce 2022 new policy for the traceabillity of Food fresh

The FDA final rule on Requirements for Additional Traceability Records for Certain Foods (Food Traceability Final Rule) establishes traceability recordkeeping requirements, beyond those in existing regulations, for persons who manufacture, process, pack, or hold foods included on the Food Traceability List (FTL). The final rule is a key component of FDA’s New Era of Smarter Food Safety Blueprint and implements Section 204 of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The new requirements identified in the final rule will allow for faster identification and rapid removal of potentially contaminated food from the market, resulting in fewer foodborne illnesses and/or deaths. 

At the core of this rule is a requirement that persons subject to the rule who manufacture, process, pack, or hold foods on the FTL, maintain records containing Key Data Elements (KDEs) associated with specific Critical Tracking Events (CTEs); and provide information to the FDA within 24 hours or within some reasonable time to which the FDA has agreed.

Food Traceability List (FTL)

Section 204 of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires the FDA to designate foods for which additional recordkeeping requirements are appropriate and necessary to protect public health. The Food Traceability List (FTL) identifies the foods for which the additional traceability records are required. The additional recordkeeping requirements apply to the foods specifically listed on the FTL, and to foods that contain listed foods as ingredients, provided that the listed food that is used as an ingredient remains in the same form (e.g., fresh) in which it appears on the list.

RFID Food traceability

RFID temperature sensor tag uses a wireless microchip and an antenna in the tag that does not need physical contact or sight positioning (like barcodes) with the reader. The reading phase is very fast and fully automated. In the case of fresh perishable products, there is also a major requirement for precise temperature monitoring along the complete logistic chain in order to ensure food safety. It is, thus, a very promising technology for the food sector, because it improves management of perishable foods, as well as tracking and tracing of food quality and safety problems.RFID temperature sensor tag developed for real-time traceability and cold chain monitoring for food applications. These sensor logged data can be stored in the memory together with traceability data.

Compliance Date

Because the Food Traceability Final Rule requires entities to share information with other entities in their supply chain, the most effective and efficient way to implement the rule is to have all persons subject to the requirements come into compliance by the same date. The compliance date for all persons subject to the recordkeeping requirements is Tuesday, January 20, 2026.
