Intentional adulteration can take several forms – terrorism on the food supply, actions of employees, consumers or competitors, and economically motivated adulteration (EMA). While EMA is covered under the Preventive Controls rules in FSMA, actions that are intended to cause widespread or wide scale public health harm are those of highest importance and risk under the Intentional Adulteration (IA) rule. 

Food vulnerability assessments are conducted to determine hazards and risks associated with food from an intentional adulteration standpoint. Actionable process steps are monitored and verified to determine their effectiveness. The FDA has several tools it has established or used to conduct vulnerability assessments these include the Key Activities Types (KAT), CARVER + Shock and the FDA Food Defense Planner.

During this webinar the speakers will offer insight into conducting food vulnerability assessments, present the advantages and limitations of each method, and afford the audience an opportunity to practice elements of conducting a vulnerability assessment.   


This webinar will address the varying methods and tools that can be used to conduct Food Defense Vulnerability Assessments.
