Learn how to develop your FDA mandated Food Defense Plan
On July 26th, 2016 the FDA as a part of FSMA put into law the fact that every food processor and distributor has to have a written Food Defense plan and that company management and supervisors need to be trained in Food Defense.
SQF Edition 8 which will be released in January 2017 will also require a more detailed Food Defense Plan.
This course provides the training and necessary information to help you develop your Food Defense Plan by demonstrating how to conduct Vulnerability Assessments and how to apply appropriate mitigation strategies at actionable process steps in your operation as required by the FDA. We will walk you through scenarios designed to identify possible areas in your operation that could be vulnerable to deliberate product contamination by people from outside of your facility and/or by your own employees.
This course does not have any pre-requisite units for entry.
This course is intended for food industry management and supervisory personnel who will need to be trained in Food
Defense and in how to implement the required mitigation strategies.
A good working knowledge of your operation and how you receive and ship products is beneficial but not imperative.
