FDA FSMA Food Defense Plan Requirements

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is the most comprehensive reform measure created to prevent food-borne illness.  Enacted in 2011, FSMA includes massive legislative changes aimed to prevent food-borne diseases.  One of the FSMA foundational rules, Mitigation Strategies to Protect against Intentional Adulteration, requires non-exempt entities to develop the appropriate preventive measures by July 26, 2019, a date that is fast-approaching.  This webinar will cover key aspects of the rule, review strategies for ensuring compliance with major provisions of the rule, including preparation of a Food Defense Plan, and suggest measures to ensure your business is prepared for the July 26, 2019, deadline.

Topics Covered:

  • Introduction to FSMA;
     
  • Scope of rule and terminology;
     
  • Food Defense Plan considerations; 
     
  • Pitfalls and discussion on how to comply with the rule; and
