Paster Training, Inc. Now Lead Instructors of the FSPCA Intentional Adulteration Conducting Vulnerability Assessments Course

We are thrilled to announce that our Vice President of Consulting, Melissa Vaccaro and Senior Consultant,
Barry Parsons have become Lead Instructors for the Food Safety Preventive Controls Alliance (FSPCA)
Intentional Adulteration Conducting Vulnerability Assessments (IAVA) Participant Course. They are two of
the first instructors to become Lead Instructors for this course.
The Mitigation Strategies to Protect Food Against Intentional Adulteration regulation (referred to as the IA
rule) applies to both domestic and foreign companies that are required to register with the FDA as food
facilities under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
Developed by the FSPCA, this course is the "standardized curriculum" recognized by the FDA. Successful
completion of this course is one way to meet the requirements for a "food defense qualified individual"
responsible for conducting a vulnerability assessment.
Paster Training will begin offering monthly public courses for the IAVA course starting this month. We will be
conducting courses all over the U.S. To see our entire 2019 schedule and register, visit our website
