Significantly, HARPC has changed allergen control through the Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) revisions. In fact, over 25 allergen related GMP mentions can be found in HARPC. Recommendations have been replaced with required GMPs under the HARPC rule. Allergen cross-contact must be mentioned in the GMP’s. Allergen controls must also address handling, storage and use.

FSMA is changing how companies manage undeclared allergen risk during the production of finished products. For example, raw agricultural commodities are exempt from FALCPA. That does not mean there is not still a risk that a commodity ingredient contains an undeclared and unexpected allergen such as a peanut protein. Food fraud can also be an allergen source. An example of food fraud is an undocumented substitution of a cheaper peanut protein for an almond protein.

In the evening of 17 December 2015, the U.S. Senate passed the “Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act” (S. 697), which reforms the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) for the first time since its enactment in 1976. The Senate approved the legislation by unanimous consent in a voice vote and broke its months-long deadlock on the floor vote. The language of the passed bill is an updated version of S. 697 from October. Sponsored by Senators David Vitter (R-LA) and Tom Udall (D-NM), S. 697 has gained filibuster-proof support this year. The next phase of the legislative process is a conference committee to reconcile the differences in the House and Senate versions of TSCA reform.

Linde AG needed to modernize its SAP EH&S environment, which complied with the current SAP standard by only 50 percent. The environment was error-prone and no longer met business needs without tremendous manual effort. The end result was that operation and maintenance were costly and inefficient.
