WASHINGTON - The Facility Certification Institute (FCI) today instituted a new program certifying compliance with federal regulations on food and feed transportation. The Certified Transport Program (CTP) incorporates the Sanitary Food Transportation Act (SFTA) of 1990 to protect the public from receiving food and other products that may have been made unsafe during truck and rail transportation.
"CTP is the latest of three FCI initiatives underway to offer more protection for the nation's food and feed supplies," said Rich Severson, FCI chairman. "It is open to anyone involved in the supply and delivery of feed and feed ingredients."
Under SFTA, persons arranging the transportation of potentially harmful substances are required to disclose the identity of the substances. FCI's program assists with that compliance and addresses federal regulations governing the use of restricted use mammalian protein products. It will also certify that trucks and rail carriers are following proper procedures to prevent carryover of restricted materials.
