Our deep knowledge of federal and state agencies is built on a strong foundation of more than 100 editors and consultants and 70+ years of regulatory compliance experience.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), an agency that carriers and drivers may not be used to dealing with, published the “Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food” rule on April 6, 2016.

This rule, published under the Food Safety Modernization Act (or FSMA), requires anyone involved in transporting human and animal food by motor or rail vehicle to follow recognized best practices for sanitary transportation. Such practices include maintaining proper temperatures, adequately cleaning vehicles between loads, and protecting food during transport.

This course is designed to give learners an overview of the FDA's Sanitary Transportation of Human and Animal Food rule. Specifically, it covers all parts of the regulation: general provisions, vehicles and transportation equipment, transportation operations, training, records and waivers.

Note: This course does not cover specifics in regards to food safety problems that may occur during transportation, sanitary practices to address those potential problems, or other specific responsibilities to ensure food safety during transport. Sanitary conditions and controls will vary based on type of food and vehicle used in transportation.

Under the new rule, drivers transporting food must receive training that covers:

  • How to identify potential food safety problems that may occur during transportation
  • Basic sanitary food transportation practices
  • The requirements of the food DOT safety regulations

Compliance deadline for the new rule:

  • For businesses other than small businesses — April 6, 2017
  • For small businesses (Any carrier that has annual receipts of less than $27.5 million) — April 6, 2018
