The Food and Drug Administration Has Made Available an Online Training Course

This online training course “Food Defense Awareness for the Intentional Adulteration Rule” was developed in partnership with the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA), Intentional Adulteration Subcommittee (IA Subcommittee). This course is being offered free of charge and is available on the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance website and on the FDA’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) website.

This course was designed specifically for individuals that are required to take a food defense awareness course to meet the requirements of the FSMA rule: Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration (21 CFR Part 121) (IA Rule). Individuals who complete the online module will be able to generate a certificate of completion from the website.
