On May 26, 2016, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published the last major rule stemming from the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This rule is designed to counteract the possibility, however unlikely, that an act of intentional adulteration could affect the U.S. food supply and cause widespread public harm.
Join IDFA for our next FSMA-related webinar to learn more about how the Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration rule, also known as the Food Defense rule, could affect the way your business operates.
The Food Defense rule requires food companies to create and maintain a written food defense plan for their facilities. In these plans, facilities must identify and implement strategies that address significant vulnerabilities, establish and maintain food defense monitoring procedures and corrective actions, maintain records monitoring these actions and ensure that employees are properly trained.
Topics addressed will be how companies can create and implement these plans, and how companies that have already developed food defense plans can update them to ensure they are compliant with the new regulation.
