The session is part of AFIA’s 2015 Regulatory Training Seminar (RTS), which will be held at the Westin Arlington Gateway in Arlington, Virginia.
RTS provides an opportunity for regulatory professionals in the feed, ingredient and pet food industries to come together to develop the necessary skills to navigate through the regulatory maze. The program is ideal for regulatory directors with several years of industry experience and will cover advanced topics and regulatory strategies.
"It is important for regulatory professionals to have the opportunity for continued education, learning the latest changes in regulations and honing their skills by working through case studies," said Leah Wilkinson, AFIA director of ingredients, pet food and state affairs. "This seminar will help participants wade through regulations, ask questions, get answers and learn from each other's best practices."
The interactive agenda consists of discussions with expert panelists about preparation for U.S. Food and Drug Administration inspections, training exercises concerning reportable food registry and recalls, how to work with state regulators and Association of American Feed Control Officials, and much more.
