The American Feed Industry Association and the National Grain and Feed Association today urged the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to remove the unnecessary regulatory burden that records required as part of the agency's revised Veterinary Feed Directive (VFD) program be maintained in accordance with the agency's onerous Part 11, Electronic Records; Electronic Signatures requirements.
"The release of the draft guidance document, ‘Current Good Manufacturing Practice Requirements for Food for Animals,’ today by FDA is very welcomed, but very late. Historically, guidance of this type is used both by industry and FDA field staff to determine the requirements of specific rules; clearly this was not the case here."
In ongoing efforts to prepare animal food organizations for the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), the three leading animal food industry trade associations hosted the first-ever Food Safety Preventive Control Alliance (FSPCA) lead instructor training for the preventive controls for animal food on July 26-29.
