On July, 26 2016, the final rule for Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration was released as part of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). This rule defines the requirements for facilities manufacturing, processing, handling, packing, and storing food products to protect food against acts intended to cause wide-scale public harm to consumers.

The regulation requires all facilities handling food products to complete a vulnerability assessment for their processes. Based on results, facilities are then required to implement mitigation strategies against potential threats (e.g., terrorism, tampering, sabotage).


Kestrel Tellevate LLC’s (KTL) Intentional Adulteration Vulnerability Assessment Training is a one-day course designed to train responsible Food Defense Qualified Individuals to understand the current requirements to protect against intentional adulteration.

This course will focus on the the vulnerability assessment approach, according to the FSMA regulation. The Food Defense Qualified Individual will learn strategies to:

  • Implement the Food Defense Plan
  • Perform the vulnerability assessment
  • Define mitigation strategies
  • Conduct periodic review of the Food Defense Plan

Participation in this course will help to ensure compliance with the requirements outlined in the Intentional Adulteration Rule to protect against food adulteration.
