The FDA expects fresh produce growers to prove their exemption or need for compliance with the FSMA Produce Rule starting January 2018. The catch is that they will expect to see records from the previous three years. Keep this in mind so that if you are asked to show your records in 2018 in relation to the FSMA Produce Rule you will be prepared with records starting in 2016. The FDA has not yet specified the exact documents that they are looking for. You should be prepared to show evidence of the total amount of human and animal food sold by the farm.
