Become your team’s food defense qualified individual by completing this one day vulnerability assessment training.

This course arms you with the knowledge to conduct a vulnerability assessment under the Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration regulation (IA Rule) of the FDA. The IA Rule is aimed at preventing intentional adulteration from acts intended to cause wide-scale harm to public health, including acts of terrorism targeting the food supply.

Food Defense Qualified Individual Training

The IA Rule requires that certain activities be completed by a “food defense qualified individual,” who has successfully completed training in conducting a vulnerability assessment. Successful completion of this course is recognized by FDA as meeting the requirements for a “food defense qualified individual” responsible for conducting a vulnerability assessment.

Your Plant's Vulnerability Assessment

The IA rule does not specify a particular method you must use to conduct your vulnerability assessment. Two potential methods that can be used are the Key Activity Type (KAT) and/or the Three Fundamental Elements methods. If you use any modifications to the KAT method or plan to use the Three Fundamental Elements method, then this course will provide valuable insights.
