The Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) has issued Notice 72-09 announcing the upcoming food defense plan survey, the fourth in a series, which will begin on December 1, 2009, and close on December 31, 2009.
The survey will gather data about industry’s voluntary adoption of food defense plans. Inspection Program Personnel (IPP) will receive the survey questions through the Performance-Based Inspection System (PBIS).
The survey consists of four questions that require only Yes or No answers. IPP are to put responses to the survey into the PBIS database. For this survey, FSIS will rely on establishment personnel’s statements for answers to the questions. Establishments that have food defense plans are not required to provide a copy of the plan to the agency.
