Food Defense Plans and Exemptions

July 14, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 10:30 am PDT


Food Defense is the effort to protect food from acts of intentional adulteration. In May 2016 FDA issued the final rule on Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration with requirements for covered facilities to prepare and implement food defense plans.

FDA works with the private sector and other government agencies on activities related to food defense, including conducting research and analysis, developing and delivering training and outreach, and conducting exercises. In addition, FDA has developed a number of tools and resources to help food facilities prevent, prepare for, respond to, and recover from acts of intentional adulteration of the food supply.

Key Topics to be Discussed:
– Food Safety Modernization Act
– Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act
– FSMA Rulemaking
– Global Food Aid
– Food Safety Policy Gap
– Final Adulteration Final Rule
– 21 CFR Part 121
– Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration
– Effective and Compliance Dates
– Current Deadlines
– Impact Analysis
