The Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance Has Made Available Another Intentional Adulteration Online Training Course

A new intentional adulteration (IA) online training course has been made available, the “IA Food Defense Plan Preparation and Reanalysis” online course was developed through a partnership between FSPCA’s Intentional Adulteration Subcommittee and FDA.  The regulation requires that individuals preparing the food defense plan and performing reanalysis “have successfully completed training for the specific function at least equivalent to that received under a standardized curriculum recognized as adequate by FDA or be otherwise qualified through job experience to conduct the activities” (21 CFR 121.4(c)(2)). This training developed by the FSPCA is the “standardized curriculum” recognized by FDA; successfully completing this course is one way to meet this training requirement.

This course is available on the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance website and can also be accessed through the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) website.
