Food Defense Course Online and Onsite

The Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration regulation (referred to as the IA regulation) is intended to protect food from acts of intentional adulteration. The regulation requires that certain activities must be completed by a “food defense qualified individual.” This participant course, developed by FSPCA, is one of the “standardized curriculum” courses recognized by FDA; successfully completing this participant course is one way to meet the requirements for conducting a vulnerability assessment by a “qualified individual.”
