AFIA, Feedstuffs offer webinar on FSMA rules

THE American Feed Industry Assn. (AFIA) and Feedstuffs will co-host a free Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) webinar from 2:00 to 4:30 p.m. (EDT) on Oct. 7.

The program will provide an overview of what managers should know about the rules on current good manufacturing practices (CGMPs), hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for food for animals, which were published in the Federal Register Sept. 17.

AFIA staff expert Richard Sellers will answer attendees' questions while addressing questions already raised, including:

* When will the rule be effective?

* How does it affect companies of different sizes?

* What CGMPs are proposed, and who needs to comply?

* What needs to be in my written hazard identification and preventive controls plan?

* How does the final rule significantly differ from the proposed rule?

* What is AFIA's plan for training?

The webinar pertains to all employees in feed, ingredient and pet food manufacturing companies. Topics that affect compliance and quality directors, mill managers and legal departments will be discussed. The webinar is recommended for facilities required to register under Section 415 of the Federal Food Drug & Cosmetic Act.

Registration is encouraged, even for those who may not be able to attend as a link to the recorded webinar will be emailed afterward. Register at http://tinyurl.com/nhw7ak4.
