Product Description

Safety Requirements of FSMA, and FDA Action Taken in Context of Food Defense


“Food defense” is the effort to protect the food supply from acts of intentional adulteration and acts of terrorism. After the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) became law, the FDA issued a final rule on “Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration,” which covered facilities to prepare and implement food defense plans. Penalties for violating the FDA’s regulations continue to climb, and with the added cost related to oversights and recalls, food defense has become a key compliance concern for organizations whose food products reach consumers.

Join this session with expert speaker Jason Teliszczak, who will cover food defense and detail what an organization needs to have in place to safely manufacture, package, and/or handle food products. Jason will talk about a broad range of production types, facilities, and the transportation of goods. This session will also highlight the key areas an organization needs to control to ensure that intentional contaminants do not enter its products.

This session will help domestic and foreign-based food manufacturers, packagers and handlers ensure compliance with security requirements and other FDA regulations. It will update you on the security and safety requirements of FSMA, particularly in the context of food defense, and highlight the FDA actions taken to date in this area.
