- FDA’s Small Entity Compliance Guide — a document intended to assist small entities in complying with the rule set forth in 21 CFR Part 112 concerning Produce Safety. FDA’s guidance documents, including this guidance, do not establish legally enforceable responsibilities. Instead, guidances describe our current thinking on a topic and should be viewed only as recommendations, unless specific regulatory or statutory requirements are cited. The use of the word should in FDA guidances means that something is suggested or recommended, but not required.
