One Network Enterprises Announces Fully FSMA 204 Compliant Configuration

The company said the configuration will enable organizations to meet and exceed FDA and recall requirements under the Food Traceability rule in the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).

October 24, 2022

DALLAS — One Network Enterprises (ONE), a global provider of intelligent control towers and the Digital Supply Chain Network™, announced the availability of a fully compliant FSMA 204 solution configuration. The FDA's proposed FSMA 204 rule establishes requirements for end-to-end food traceability across the trading partner ecosystem. This is an expansion of today's practice of "one-up, one-back" traceability, commonly referred to as a hub and spoke supply chain structure.

The new FSMA 204 rule requires organizations and their respective sites and operations to maintain traceability program records for regulators to ensure compliance. The ability to respond quickly is an important goal of FSMA 204, and facilities will need to respond to the FDA with traceability records within 24 hours of a request.

Supply chains have increased in complexity with omnichannel demand, smaller lot sizes, global sourcing, increased mix, and assortment availability. Traditional siloed technologies make it challenging for producers, distributors, and government agencies to trace issues across these more complex supply chain networks. Supply chain digitization efforts have exacerbated the challenge by increasing the data volume, making effective decision-making and rapid response extremely difficult.

End-to-end food traceability across every supply chain node, along with the actionability required to execute rapid recalls, necessitates end-to-end track and trace with integrated execution capabilities. These are fundamental capabilities available in the One Network NEO Platform. The new FSMA-compliant configuration complements One Network's existing traceability, lot aggregation/disaggregation (box, batch, and pallet), temperature tracking, shelf-life, serialized lot tracking, and chain of custody solutions deployed in multiple sectors including food, pharmaceutical, and high-tech.

One Network's food management solution enables organizations to be FSMA 204 compliant today and ready for the likely expansion of the food list and traceability requirements in the coming years.
