This supplemental draft guidance document, when finalised, will help the food sector that manufacture, process, pack, or hold food,to comply with the requirements of the subsidiary Regulation “Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration.” The latest draft guidance has chapters covering “food defence corrective actions, food defence verification, re-analysis, and recordkeeping.” The first four chapters of the guidance were published in June 2018 and addressed how to set up a food defence plan and carry out vulnerability assessments, with preliminary guidance on mitigation. A second document published in March 2019 extended the information on vulnerability assessment and other topics including staff training. The consultation ends in June 2020.
