Read Frequently Asked Questions

Why Should You Attend:

The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) has resulted in several regulations, including one to guard against Intentional Adulteration (IA, also commonly called Food Defense). While the final rule is set to be published in May 2016, we can understand “monitoring” from the proposed IA rule, and from other similar final rules such as the Preventive Controls Rule for Human Food.

This session is designed for food defense and food safety practitioners who are preparing for implementation of the Intentional Adulteration Rule. Those who have existing food defense plans should understand how the monitoring requirements go beyond most existing food defense plans and what enhancements will be needed to comply with the rule. Operations which have relied on the FDA supplied Food Defense Plan Builder software tool should know the limitations of the existing tool, and how to overcome them.

Program participants may be familiar with monitoring for quality and food safety. This program will explain key differences anticipated in monitoring for food defense practices. Six specific recommendations will be provided to extend your existing (or planned) vulnerability assessment into an effective monitoring program.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • What is FSMA and what is the proposed rule for intentional adulteration?
  • When is the final rule expected to be published?
  • What does IA proposed rule say about monitoring?
  • What does the final rule for preventive controls say about monitoring?
  • What is (and what is the difference) between monitoring, verification and validation?
  • What monitoring is documented within current the Food Defense Plan Builder software tool? What are the shortcomings?
  • What constitutes proper monitoring?
  • What documentation is needed for monitoring?
  • How is monitoring for food defense different than monitoring for food safety?
  • Is validation required?
  • Specific recommendations to go from a vulnerability assessment to a monitoring program
