Join food safety experts Maile Hermida and Elizabeth Fawell of Hogan Lovells for the latest ASTA/FEMA FSMA Webinar scheduled for Wednesday, May 27 at 12:00pm (ET).
The Webinar will go over coming changes for FDA inspections to assist in preparation for the new generation of FDA inspections that will be conducted as the agency works to implement FSMA.
FSMA implementation is coming. FDA will be issuing final regulations to implement the major provisions of FSMA starting this fall, with compliance expected by fall 2016. As a result, facility inspections are going to be dramatically different. We want to help ASTA and FEMA members prepare for this new inspection paradigm by conducting a webinar that explains how inspections will change, the consequences of non-compliance, other information regarding FDA’s FSMA implementation plans, and where companies should direct their FSMA preparation efforts.
All spice and flavor industry businesses that import food into or do business in the United States should attend this important installment in the FSMA Web series. Registration will remain open through Wednesday, May 20.
