On January 4, 2011, the federal government enacted the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the most sweeping food safety legislation since the 1938 Federal Food, Drug, & Cosmetic Act. 

Exactly two years later, on January 4, 2013, FDA announced publication of two new proposed rules as mandated by FSMA. These proposed rules address Preventive Controls for Food and Produce Safety.

Leading the process for preparing detailed comments, the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) will host the two-part webinar, FSMA Update: What the New Proposed Rules for Preventive Controls for Food and Produce Safety Mean to the Industry on January 11th, 2:00 - 3:30 PM and January 14, 2:00 - 3:00 PM (EST).

Part I: Friday January 11, 2013, 2:00 - 3:30pm (EST)

During part one of this webinar, hear from experts Joe Levitt, Partner at Hogan Lovells US LLP and former Director of FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) and Elizabeth Fawell, Associate at Hogan Lovells US LLP, who will specifically address what is included in two of the proposed rules on Preventive Controls for Food and Produce Safety including key effective dates and the implementation timeline for compliance.

Our Hogan Lovells team will also identify any potential high level issues or barriers that will need to be considered during the public comment period.  They will also identify and address what food manufacturers can begin doing today for effective implementation.

Part II: Monday January 14, 2013, 2:00 - 3:00pm (EST)

On Monday, January 14th join Jenny Scott, Senior Advisor to the Director of the Office of Food Safety, FDA CFSAN and Don Kraemer, Senior Advisor, FDA CFSAN for an overview of the major provisions of the proposed rules, the most significant changes that will be felt by the industry and an extended question and answer session!
