Intentional Adulteration (Food Defense) Workshop
Wednesday, October 10, 2018 | 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued this final rule to require domestic and foreign food facilities that are registered under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) to address hazards that may be introduced with the intention to cause wide-scale public health harm.
These food facilities are required to conduct a vulnerability assessment to identify significant vulnerabilities, actionable process steps and implement mitigation strategies to significantly minimize or prevent significant vulnerabilities. FDA issued these requirements as part of the implementation of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This rule became effective July 26, 2016.
This workshop is designed to give an overview of the Intentional Adulteration (IA) rule, provide Food Defense training, conduct vulnerability assessments and how to implement mitigation strategies.
Certificate of training will be provided for all participants.
