An implemented food defense system is now required by FDA-regulated processing and liquid storage facilities through the new Intentional Adulteration (IA) rule, 21 CFR 121. The rule goes into effect on July 26, 2019, with enforcement activity beginning in March, 2020. The IA rule has specific employee training requirements. Food Defense Awareness training is required by many employees and supervisors. Each facility must have a written food defense plan prepared by an individual trained through FDA-recognized materials. To date, FDA in conjunction with FSPCA, has developed the required training materials modules: Conducting Vulnerability Assessments (either Key Activity Types (K.A.T.) or 3 Element Method programs), Identifying and Explaining Mitigation Strategies, the food defense plan, and reanalyzing the food defense plan.
This workshop meets the FDA IA rule training requirements for Food Defense Awareness, Vulnerability Assessment using the K.A.T. Method, Identifying & Explaining Mitigation Strategies, Food Defense Plan, and Reanalysis of the Plan. Curriculum used in our training course for these mandatory training components is equivalent to the FDA-recognized materials available now only through on-line training courses. This training program was developed using these now publicly available FDA curriculum.
All participants will receive a Certificate of Completion on successful participation in the course. The certificate will attest compliance of the participant with the FDA training mandates.
