Some FSMA PSR requirements may overlap with on-farm activities other state or federal laws require. This factsheet discusses four federal laws where overlap is possible: the Clean Water Act (and state regulation of nonpoint source pollution), the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and guidelines from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. In many cases, producers have adopted or modified on-farm activities in order to meet the requirements outlined in these other federal laws. Although the FSMA PSR outlines a new set of required activities for producers, these existing practices may already provide co-compliance with certain FSMA PSR requirements (satisfying both the FSMA PSR and other relevant laws), or may require only slight adjustments to do so.
