Product Description

Enact a Food Supply Safety & Risk Mitigation Plan—Before 2019

The Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Food Safety Modernization Act rules are meant to prevent the intentional adulteration of food. In practice, the regulation means that food supply executives and employees can be criminally charged for selling tainted products—even if they were not aware of the adulteration. The first round of these food safety rules goes into effect in 2019, meaning you must assemble your safety and mitigation plan now.

John Ryan specializes in preventive controls for the food industry and, in this live webinar, will show you and your team how to build a food defense plan that will satisfy federal requirements and keep you out of hot water. The federal rules are complex and carry major consequences for violations. Plus, they apply to almost all FDA-registered food suppliers. Find out exactly what your safety compliance obligations are for 2019.

After attending this detailed session, you will understand the final FDA safety rules, as well as applicable exemptions and the coming compliance deadlines. Ryan will also equip you to assess your specific company’s needs and meet risk mitigation strategy requirements. When you leave, you’ll know how to assemble a proactive, prevention-focused food defense team.
