WG has been leading a project to release a fully-revised version of the LGMA-approved metrics. As part of this project, 4 listening session and one webinar have been hosted to allow impacted parties to provide feedback. This effort is beyond the current annual LGMA-approved metrics amendment process managed by WG. This initiative incorporates peer-reviewed research presented at the Center of Produce Safety Symposiums, input from an independent expert review panel, the Harmonized Food Safety Standard and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Produce Safety Rule.

From March 20, 2015 to April 24, 2015, WG received a few comments (see attachments) related to the issues open for comment during this period (see below). During this upcoming webinar, WG will highlight those comments and offer webinar participants an opportunity to provide feedback or ask questions.

Comments and feedback received during this webinar are important to vet proposed changes/comments through this process. The outcome of this webinar will be summarized and presented to the Arizona and California LGMAs this summer (likely June and July respectively).

From March 06, 2012 to April 6, 2012 Western Growers was asking for proposed changes to Issues 13 & 14 of the document ( Production Locations). This period closed without proposed changes related to these sections. However, a previous idea in a different section was resubmitted for consideration. This proposed change was accepted by the Arizona LGMA in a previous period, but was not accepted by the California LGMA.
