The seminar also will involve a detailed discussion of an acceptable Food Safety Plan to be developed by the companies which are covered by the Rule. Another element of the seminar will be the requirements for implementation of the Food Safety Plan, such as monitoring of compliance with the Plan, actions in response to issues found during monitoring, mitigation in the event of safety problems, training and recordkeeping. We also will discuss the resources to support industry compliance currently available or under development by FDA.

Who will Benefit:
For the first time, the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), passed in 2013, required FDA to impose on food producers an obligation to draft and implement Food Defense Plans for defense of their food processes and products against terrorists compromising the safety of the food supply. In May 2016, FDA issued the final rule to implement the requirements of FSMA for FDA to require companies to develop and maintain Food Defense Plans to protect food against intentional adulteration. Food Defense and intentional adulteration of food in this context mean intentional contamination that could cause serious adverse health consequences to humans or animals, as determined by FDA in consultation with the Department of Homeland Security.
Pursuant to the FSMA mandate, on May 26,2016, FDA issued the final rule entitled Migration Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration (the Food Defense Rule). The Rule applies to all food facilities, domestic and foreign, which produce food for consumption in the United States and are therefore required to register with FDA under Section 415 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act). The Food Defense Rule is subject to certain exemptions, which will be discussed in the seminar.
