Kathleen A. Hardee, co-chair of Polsinelli’s Food & Ag Group, will be giving a special double-header webinar for FDAnews on Wednesday, Dec. 16. Part 1, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. ET, will cover preventive controls, and Part 2, from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., will cover foreign supplier verification.

Part 1 – Preventive Controls for Human and Animal Food

Most manufacturers required to register with the FDA as a food facility must now create a specific written food safety plan.

Major steps in the plan include conducting a hazard analysis and designing preventive controls. To allow flexibility for a manufacturer to design a safety plan which meets the unique needs of both its food product and facility, the rule is left intentionally vague — in fact, the FDA has declined to provide a sample plan.

During this presentation attendees will learn:

  •     The FDA’s “Seven Pillars” and the schedule for their implementation
  •     What a food safety plan must include
  •     Who is a preventative controls qualified individual

Depending on the size of a business, there may have less than a year left to comply with these rules. The smallest businesses (less than $1 million in sales annually) and those subject to the pasteurized milk ordinance have three years from the release of the regulations. Businesses with fewer than 500 full-time employees have two years; anyone larger has only one.

Part 2 – Foreign Supplier Verification Program and Accredited Third-Party Certification

The final rule requires that importers perform certain risk-based activities to verify that food imported into the U.S. has been produced in a manner that meets applicable safety standards.

During part 2 attendees will learn:

  •     The two chief purposes of Accredited Third-Party Certification
  •     How the size of a business affects compliance deadlines

Depending on several factors, businesses may have just over a year left to comply with the FSVP. If a company is affected by the supply chain preventive controls rule mentioned in Part 1, the date for compliance with the FSVP is the same. If a business imports from a supplier affected by that rule, the date is six months after theirs. Otherwise, companies have 18 months from the November publication of these rules.

Don’t wait — get the information now. These two webinars, separately $287 each, are being offered together for $459. Take advantage of this deal and stay ahead of the curve.
