Why Should You Attend:

GFSI and Certification Programme Owners require that documented food fraud vulnerability assessments and control plans be put in place in order to meet audit requirements. The U.S. FDA has also implemented additional requirements related to prevention of economically motivated adulteration. Do you have a good understanding of how to put this in place and where you can source the information to support your assessment? This webinar will address these new requirements and walk you step by step through the tools and resources available to support you in meeting food fraud mitigation audit requirements.

This webinar will present historical background on food fraud with presentations of specific incidents and lessons learned. The presenter will also discuss details of new U.S. FDA Food Safety Modernization Act and Global Food Safety Initiative requirements related to prevention of food fraud and economically motivated adulteration. The presenter will give an overview of various tools available to support the conduct of vulnerability assessments by the food industry, with a brief description of some of the similarities and differences within each. Finally, a discussion of what is currently known about how auditors are approaching an assessment of food fraud requirements will be presented.
