SUBCHAPTER A--GENERAL

PART 1 -- GENERAL ENFORCEMENT REGULATIONS

Subpart M--Accreditation of Third-Party Certification Bodies To Conduct Food Safety Audits and To Issue Certifications

Requirements for Third-Party Certification Bodies That Have Been Accredited Under This Subpart

Sec. 1.654 When must an accredited third-party certification body monitor an eligible entity that it has issued a food or facility certification?

If an accredited third-party certification body has reason to believe that an eligible entity to which it issued a food or facility certification may no longer be in compliance with the applicable food safety requirements of the FD&C Act and FDA regulations, the accredited third-party certification body must conduct any monitoring (including an onsite audit) of such eligible entity necessary to determine whether the entity is in compliance with such requirements. The accredited third-party certification body must immediately notify FDA, under 1.656(d), if it withdraws or suspends a food or facility certification because it determines that the entity is no longer in compliance with the applicable food safety requirements of the FD&C Act and FDA regulations. The accredited third-party certification body must maintain records of such monitoring under 1.658.
