    This is an excellent opportunity for food processors to learn details of the new proposed FDA regulation, Current Good Manufacturing Practices and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls for Human Food, and in turn provide informed feedback to FDA during the comment period which will end September 16, 2013. The full text of the proposed regulation can be found in the Federal Register, Volume 78, No. 11, January 16, 2013, page 3646.

    The Workshop will help attendees become more knowledgeable on upcoming significant changes to food safety regulations and will help them understand what potential modifications will need to be made to their food safety and HACCP programs.

    The FMSA was signed into law by President Obama on January 4, 2011. This new law is the largest expansion of the FDA authority over the food industry since the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act in 1938. It applies to all food and dairy processors who manufacture products that are not regulated by USDA FSIS, to importers of food, and to farms. The impact of this law goes beyond the food industry, and FDA will soon be proposing another regulation regarding the safety of animal feed and pet food.
