This FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) final 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. Rather than targeting specific foods or hazards, this rule requires mitigation (risk-reducing) strategies for processes in certain registered food facilities. This course is taught by Lead Instructors trained by the FSPCA, who have been instructed in how to teach the FDA-recognized standardized curriculum.
Who will benefit from taking this course?
Employees with responsibilities in Security, Food Defense, Quality Assurance, Food Safety, HACCP, Preventive Controls, Regulatory Affairs, Food Production, Maintenance, Safety, Human Resources and any other associates interested in protecting the food supply against acts of intentional adulteration
What skills can students expect to learn?
This course will teach attendees how to conduct vulnerability assessments using three key elements:
- The severity and scale of the potential impact on public health.
- The degree of physical access to the product.
- The ability to successfully contaminate the product.
Attendees will also learn the hybrid approach to conducting vulnerability assessments which combines the KAT method with the three key element method as mentioned above.
