The FDA has published Spanish translations of the Produce Safety Rule draft guidance “At-A-Glance” overviews which highlight key points in each chapter of the draft guidance.

In October 2018, FDA published a draft guidance that, when finalized, will help to support compliance and implementation of the Produce Safety Rule and will help assist farmers with meeting the requirements of the rule. Through the use of examples, the draft guidance demonstrates how farmers can meet the rule’s requirements while accommodating growing practices that vary by region and commodity. The “At-A-Glance” overviews were developed to further assist farmers and other stakeholders with the information.

Although you can comment on the draft guidance at any time, you should submit your comments by April 22, 2019, to ensure that we consider your comments before we begin work on the final version of the guidance. Comments can be submitted to http://www.regulations.gov under docket number FDA-2018-D-3631.
