Upper Saddle River, NJ (January 8, 2013) The Food Institute and premier FDA/USDA law firm OFW Law will present a 90-minute webinar on Thursday, January 24, 2013 to explore the proposed rule, issued on January 4, 2013 by the Food & Drug Administration. This FDA proposed rule covers hazard analysis and preventive controls for human food. What would this proposed rule do? It would modernize the existing CGMP regulations for human food. Additionally, the proposed ruling would require each registered food facility, unless exempt, to perform a hazard analysis and develop a written food safety plan addressing any hazards reasonably likely to occur in its products. It would also expand the definition of "farm" in FDA's registration regulations (thereby broadening the farm exemption from registration and the new preventive controls requirements.)

Throughout the course of this 90-minute presentation, The Food Institute and OFW Law will discuss the subject matter listed below:

  • Proposed changes to the existing CGMP regulations
  • Who must comply with the new requirements
  • Who is exempt
  • What is not in the proposed rule (e.g., food defense)
  • What is not in the proposed rule but may be in the final rule (e.g., testing of raw materials and ingredients, finished product testing, environmental monitoring, supplier approval and verification requirements)
  • Proposed new recordkeeping and records access requirements
  • The proposed dates for compliance
     

Join The Food Institute and OFW Law on January 24, 2013 for 90 minutes as they explore the newest ruling and evaluate the two year delay on the Food Safety Modernization Act. Increased FSMA activity is expected in the coming months, and we will be delivering that information on a timely basis through informative webinars. Each webinar will offer attendees a broad overview of step-by-step FDA implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act and how all of the pieces will fit together. If interested, prior FSMA webinars, previously recorded, are also available for purchase. Register today for this informative event by CLICKING HERE.
