Produce market intermediaries, such as a produce auction, food hub, or broker, may be considered a facility subject to the Food Safety Modernization Act Preventive Controls for Human Food Rule (FSMA PCHF), a secondary activities farm subject to the FSMA Produce Safety Rule (PSR), or a retail food establishment subject to neither FSMA rule. This determination is case specific. This factsheet explores these definitions and relevant considerations to assist intermediaries in determining whether they are: (1) facilities that must register with FDA and comply with the FSMA PCHF; (2) secondary activities farms that must comply with the FSMA PSR; or (3) not subject to either FSMA rule.
