Produce Safety Program

It can be hard to understand if your operation is covered under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Produce Safety Rule. The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) created a FSMA Produce Safety Rule decision tool designed to help produce growers decide whether their farm is covered by the Produce Safety Rule.
This is a general guide to assist growers.

A good resource from the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is their Standards for Produce Safety Coverages and Exemptions Flowchart​. This can help you quickly assess if your operation is covered or not.
