Making Sense of FDA's New Preventive Control and Supplier Verification Proposals

Webinar sponsored by:






Making Sense of FDA's New Preventive Control and Supplier Verification Proposals

Complimentary access for IDFA Members and Business Partners!

When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) proposed the Preventive Controls for Human Food rule in January 2013, the provisions that dealt with supplier verification, environmental monitoring and finished product pathogen testing had all been stripped out of the rule by the White House Office of Management and Budget. While stripped out, the details of what FDA intended to require became clear and IDFA has been aggressive in explaining to rule makers what makes sense and what doesn’t for the dairy industry. 

On September 19th, FDA released supplemental proposed rules including requirements on those previously stripped-out details, plus domestic and foreign supplier verification and preventive controls for animal food/feed. 

Did IDFA get through to them or is FDA proposing exactly what we fought hard against?

Presented by Alchemy Systems, this webinar will feature an interactive presentation by IDFA’s outside legal counsel, Joseph Levitt and Elizabeth Fawell, of Hogan Lovells US LLP, who will provide detailed analysis and guidance on what to expect next year when the final rules are published. Laura Nelson of Alchemy Systems will provide valuable advice on how to demonstrate FSMA compliance through proper recordkeeping.
