Glen Burnie, MD (PRWEB) February 05, 2013
Maryland based consulting firm, FDAImports.com, has released three new training videos based on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) recently released Proposed Rules for Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls (HARPC) and Standards for Produce Safety under the Food Safety Modernization Act. The videos go beyond a summary of the Proposed Rules and instead focus on key areas of impact within the Rules that are not immediately evident but could have significant impact on the food industry, both domestic and abroad. The short, web-based videos provide unique insight into the Proposed Rules based on the firm’s voluminous regulatory work with the international food manufacturing industry. Embedding instructions are available with each video.
• FDA’s invention of an adulteration charge
• Mandatory recall plans
• “Qualified individuals” and definitions
• “Should” and “Must” changes within cGMP
Standards for Produce Safety
• Lack of adulteration charge
• Warning letter example of FDA already acting on the Proposed Rule
Impact for Importers and Foreign Suppliers
• Comment period timeframe
• Exemptions and HACCP/HARPC/cGMP overlap
• Increased costs of mandatory requirements
• FDA already implementing proposed regulations
The firm also released a creative outtakes reel from the video shoot.
