Updated Food Defense Plan Builder

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will hold a webinar to provide interested stakeholders with a brief demonstration of the updated Food Defense Plan Builder, which was released on September 19, 2019, and to answer questions about the tool.

The Intentional Adulteration (IA) rule under the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act requires the food industry to implement risk-reducing strategies for processes in food facilities that are significantly vulnerable to intentional adulteration. Food facilities covered by the rule are required to develop and implement a food defense plan that identifies vulnerabilities and mitigation strategies. The Food Defense Plan Builder v. 2.0 aligns with the requirements in the IA rule and can be used to easily create food defense plans that support compliance with the rule.

Registration is required to attend the webinar. After registering for the webinar, you will be sent the webinar link as well as a pre-recorded Food Defense Plan Builder v. 2.0 demonstration video to view prior to the webinar.
