Food Defense Program - Compliance Requirements, FDA Expectations and Enforcement
Friday, February 28, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PST)
This food defense webinar will detail what an organization needs to have in place in order to safely manufacture, package, and or handle food products. It will cover a broad range of production types, facilities, and the transportation of goods. This webinar will highlight key areas of the organization that need to be controlled to ensure that intentional contaminants do not enter the product by potential threats
Why Should You Attend:
Since the Food Safety Modernization Act of 2010 was signed into law by President Obama on January 4, 2011, Food Defense is now clearly called out and must be adhered to. These requirements mandate FDA’s action in the area of Food Defense, and penalties continue to go higher and higher. With the associated costs related to oversights and recalls, Food Defense is an important economic aspect of any organization.
This session is designed for food manufacturers, packagers and handlers and is focused towards helping both domestic and foreign entities in ensuring compliance with being secure and remaining compliant to FDA regulations. This session will cover the security and safety requirements of FSMA, particularly in the context of Food Defense, and will highlight FDA action taken to date in this area.
Participants will receive a model food defense plan that helps you assess security measures and risk reduction programs at your facility.
