Design a food defense program to mitigate intentional adulteration
and meet FSMA requirements.

Food defense isn't a new concept, but it is a new requirement that all food facilities must meet due to FDA's Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations. Challenge how you would handle intentional adulteration in your food plant with the help of our case-study workshops. Our completely renovated course content relates directly back to your customer requirements, the FSMA final ruling, and GFSI certification standards. Learn how to design a comprehensive food defense plan that meets FDA's newly-imposed regulations with our easy-to-navigate course content and participant guide. Become an AIB Certified Food Defense Coordinator by achieving a score of 80% or higher on the online certification exam within 30 days of course completion.

After this seminar, you'll know how to:

  • Complete a vulnerability assessment and choose appropriate physical and/or procedural countermeasures that address identified risks
  • Devise a crisis management program and create scenarios to test your facility's readiness
  • Modify traditional recall programs to deal with intentional contamination events
  • Develop employee food defense training sessions that meet FDA's expectations
  • Use various techniques to deal with workplace violence

Upon successful completion of this course you will receive 1.4 IACET continuing education units.

**This course represents the current industry thinking and best practices on food defense. As the FDA issues further requirements and guidance on intentional adulteration, the course will be updated accordingly.
