While compliance for FSMA is not the most fun winemaking topic, it can also appear overwhelming. However, with the FDA’s goal of inspecting each FDA-registered food/beverage manufacturing facility by the end of 2018, many wineries are getting a head start on developing their compliance documentation and preparing for future FDA inspections.
If you would like to learn more about developing documentation for your winery, then this training series is for you!
The DG Winemaking Winery Compliance Training Series is a set of five webinar modules, each about 30 – 40 minutes in length and additional hour open for Q&A. This five-webinar series will include the following topics pertaining to FSMA compliance:
- Introduction to FSMA
- FSMA Module 1: Writing Process Flow Diagrams for Winery Operations
- FSMA Module 2: cGMPs and Writing Winery Specific cGMPs
- FSMA Module 3: Writing SOPs & SSOPs
- FSMA Module 4: Implementing an Employee Training Program
- FSMA Module 5: Introduction to Traceability for Smaller Wineries
Objective of Training Series
I’ve cut down the detail associated with the FSMA regulation and pulled out key parts that apply to wineries. The purpose of these webinars is to train you on how to develop a more organized program to address FSMA compliance and to put together documentation to show as such.
Each module will include instructions on
- what you have to do, write, or organize,
- where you can go for further resources, and
- practical, time-efficient solutions to comply wisely.
Bring a pen or pencil and some paper to take notes during each webinar. Some of the modules will offer you details to create your own documentation template.
Cost of Webinars
Each live webinar module is $50 individually, or you can purchase the five-module series for $200.
All modules are free for DGWinemaking clients with a purchased consulting subscription. You can find more about DGWinemaking consulting packages here.
