April 19, 2016  -  Charles Woodhouse's article on the Sanitary Transportation FSMA Final Rule appears in the Spring 2016 issue of Food, Cosmetics & Nutraceuticals published by the American Bar Association. A second article, also by Woodhouse, is planned for a subsequent issue. This first article presents a Compliance Flow Chart for US Food Importers and their overseas Suppliers. The second article will present a detailed discussion on the preparation of the Sanitary Transportation Plans required of all entities that transport, via ground-transportation, or hold, human and animal food in the United States. This includes all entities that "cause" or "initiate" shipments from outside the United States if domestic ground-transport is involved at any point in the Supply-Chain cycle.

A reprint of the article is posted below.
