Asterisk * Superscripted letter S Superscripted letter N Superscripted dagger Meaning Designates a CRITICAL provision Designates a SWING provision (may or may not be considered CRITICAL) Designates a NONCRITICAL provision Indicates the provision was added by the Uniformed Services and is not presented in the FDA Food Code Guarding America - Defending Freedom General Principles Category Definitions CRITICAL refers to a condition/provision that is likely to result in food contamination, illness, or a significant environmental health hazard
SWING provisions represent criteria that are generally critical, but may be considered a non-critical violation, depending on the circumstances. Regulators must apply professional judgment. Consistency among inspection team members will decrease frustration among food facility managers.

Description Pre-operational conducted before a facility is authorized to open for business; new facility Routine planned inspection; unannounced and always comprehensive Complaint investigates specific issue/concern presented by a customer Follow-up conducted as a result of a non-compliant rating (shall be conducted no later than 5 calendar days following the NonCompliant inspection)
Other (specify) Walk-through, self-evaluation, or contract performance Guarding America - Defending Freedom Major Changes Food establishment self-evaluations (8-402.12 [page 156]) Performed & documented weekly by food establishment manager/PIC; Documented using the Food Operation Inspection Report or other appropriate self-evaluation checklist. Records retained on site for 1 year. Daily informal assessments do not require documentation. Documents reviewed by regulatory authority during routine inspections. Guarding America - Defending Freedom Major Changes Inspection frequencies Minimum frequencies recommended for
each type of food operation based on Assumed risk associated with operation complexity Primary population served Historical inspection performance Guarding America - Defending Freedom Major Changes Inspection Rating Criteria (page158) Process is no longer subjective Rating Fully Compliant Substantially Compliant Partially Compliant Non-Compliant 1 2 Criteria
No deficiencies No Imminent Health Hazard (IHH)1; Two or less Critical findings Corrected on Site (COS)2; Five or less Non-Critical findings No IHH Three or more Critical findings COS; Six or more Non-Critical findings Any IHH present Any Critical findings not COS Presence of any imminent health hazard results in a Non-Compliant rating.
Presence of any Critical finding that cannot be corrected on site results in a Non-Compliant rating. Guarding America - Defending Freedom Major Changes Time frame for corrections and follow-up inspections (8-405.11 & 8-406.11 [page 160]) Critical findings shall be corrected on-site (COS) (i.e. during the inspection); Non-compliant inspection ratings require a formal follow-up within 5 calendar days. Critical findings not COS will result in a Non-Compliant inspection rating Follow-up inspections are documented on the Food Operation Inspection Report, DD Form 2973. Follow-up inspections will continue (within 5 calendar days of the last inspection) until the critical finding is completed Non-critical findings must be corrected by a date & time agreed to or specified by the regulatory authority & no later
than 30 calendar days. Follow-up inspection to verify correction of non-critical violations are at the discretion of the regulatory authority. Guarding America - Defending Freedom Major Changes Medical Authority vs. Regulatory Authority The designation of these roles was not consistently applied by each Service Medical authority is the medical commander or command surgeon whose authority is above the preventive medicine, public health, or veterinary activity performing food safety surveillance Regulatory authority is the public health, preventive medicine, or Vet asset with jurisdiction over the food establishment to conduct food safety surveillance

Guarding America - Defending Freedom Operational Rations Guarding America - Defending Freedom Overview Purpose Types of Rations Location and Frequency of Local Rations Inspections Guarding America - Defending Freedom Purpose Our ability to sustain a fighting force in a combat zone depends upon the ability to keep the troops supplied with the necessities of life. Part of that plan is to feed our troops operational
rations until other food supply lines and equipment have been established and received. DOD rations inspection program ensures consistency and accuracy among the services.

Risk Management is a cyclic systematic process to address potential hazards. It is a structured, common sense approach that can be applied to reduce risks and ensure that the best security measures are applied to daily operations (in this context, the food and water supply) RM Five-Step Process The RM five-step process is a continuous cycle and only works if all five steps are followed in sequence as each is a building block for the next step Guarding America - Defending Freedom DoD Risk Matrix for BW Threat (HAZARD PROBABILITY) Medical Risk

Some
factors that play into food targets are: Large Batches Uniform Production Short Shelf Life Ease of Access Guarding America - Defending Freedom FVA Step 1: Lead must be PHO or NCOIC (7-lvl or 9-lvl) or 5-lvl with FVA training Coordinate with base Anti-Terrorism Officer (ATO) and Physical Security Managers (PSMs) Facilitate FVA schedule with ATO, MSG/CC, MDG/CC, facility managers, DeCA, FSS, SFS, and AAFES Review previous FVAs Review local threat brief Review all base food operation contracts Guarding America - Defending Freedom
FVA Step 2: Develop a comprehensive list of food assets and contact facility mangers (On and Off-Base facilities, Distributors, Caterers, and Contract Establishments) FVA Step 3: Conduct on-site assessment of facility (Begin five-step RM process using the appropriate DTRA checklist) Guided discussion with food facility/operation manager Example: What are the procedures for responding to food product tampering? Walk through Example: Are the procedures documented? Ask employees questions FVA Benchmarks and tools (Gumbo Site, https://gumbo2.area52.afnoapps.usaf.mil/epi-consult/foodprotection /fooddefense/ ) Guarding America - Defending Freedom FVA Step 4: Identify hazards (Step one of RM process) Potential aggressors?

FVA Step 6: Determine and assign risk levels VULNERABILITY Medium Concern Low Concern A situation or circumstance that if left unchanged May result in the loss of life or damage to mission-essential resources.
A situation that is exploitable and that can indirectly lead to loss of life or damage to missionessential resources. Neutral A practice that is neither exploitable nor can be reasonably assessed as leading to the death of a service member, DoD civilian, family member or the destruction of mission essential resources, but is being identified to suggest consideration of modification or continuation. Positive A practice that contributes to a successful AT program and merits further analysis and dissemination.
