American Feed Industry Association Webinar Series
on Food Safety Modernization Act

The American Feed Industry Association will conduct four webinars covering the details of the Food Safety Modernization Act. Each webinar is two and a half hours long, allowing plenty of time for questions and answers. The first three webinars will build upon each other and the forth webinar focuses on topics related to pet food and pet food ingredients. Speakers for the webinars include experts from AFIA and U.S. Food and Drug Administration. 

FSMA was signed into law on Jan. 4, 2011, and provides FDA with sweeping new authorities and requirements. The law was a bipartisan supported bill backed by the food and feed industries. It allows FDA to promulgate new rules for preventive controls, develop performance standards, create new administrative detention rules, provides authority for mandatory recall of adulterated products and provides authority for hiring more than 4,000 new field staff among other provisions

Webinar No. 1, Tuesday, Aug. 30 from 2:00 – 4:30 p.m. ET*: 
*This webinar will begin at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Please disregard UTC time. 
The topics covered during this webinar are an overview of FMSA, a history of how this rule came about and who is covered. In addition, key definitions and dates of implementation are in the discussion. An in-depth review of current good manufacturing practices: building the basics and how to develop a recall plan are also on the agenda.
