Must read

ARLINGTON, Va. — Registration is now open for the American Feed Industry Association’s 2015 Regulatory Training Seminar to be held Dec. 9-10, at the Westin Arlington Gateway in Arlington, Va. Prior to the event, AFIA will host a one-day Food Safety Modernization Act Phase III “The Future is Now” training on Dec. 8.

The program is designed for regulatory directors with several years of industry experience and will cover advanced topics and regulatory strategies.

“It is important for regulatory professionals to have the opportunity for continued education, learning the latest changes in regulations and honing their skills by working through case studies,” said Leah Wilkinson, AFIA director of ingredients, pet food and state affairs. “This seminar will help participants wade through regulations, ask questions, get answers and learn from each other’s best practices.”

The interactive agenda consists of discussions with expert panelists about preparation for U.S. Food & Drug Administration inspections, training exercises concerning reportable food registry and recalls, how to work with state regulators and Association of American Feed Control Officials, and much more.

The pre-event on the Food Safety Modernization Act will review components of the final rule and what is needed to comply — from the Current Good Manufacturing practices to the hazard analysis and preventive controls and the impact on the animal food industry.

Registration for both events is available online at http://www.afia.org/ev_calendar_day.asp?date=12/9/2015%208:00:00%20AM&eventid=75.
