Food Defense – FSMA Final Rule for Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration
FDA’s final Intentional Adulteration (IA) rule is aimed at preventing intentional adulteration from acts intended to cause wide-scale harm to public health, including acts of terrorism targeting the food supply. Such acts, while not likely to occur, could cause illness, death, economic disruption of the food supply absent mitigation strategies. Rather than targeting specific foods or hazards, this rule requires mitigation (risk-reducing) strategies for processes in certain registered food facilities.
The rule, which is required by the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, requires covered facilities to prepare and implement food defense plans. This workshop will give an overview of what is expected from FDA along with industry specific tools for implementing mitigation strategies.
Who Will Benefit
Employees with responsibilities in Food Defense, Quality, Food Safety, HACCP, Regulatory Affairs, Food Production, and any other associates interested in achieving a better understanding of the implementation/maintenance of Food Defense.
