Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will provide an update on the U.S. FDA's new Food Safety Modernization Act, its inspectional process and discuss how to prepare for an FDA inspection.

Why Should You Attend:

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) requires FDA to change the way it regulates the food industry. Previously, FDA's primary mission was to respond to incidents, with minor emphasis on inspections. FSMA now requires FDA to focus its resources on preventing incidents before they happen by requiring the agency to inspect domestic and foreign food facilities, and requires the agency to impose significant fees on inspected companies and their agents if re-inspection is required.

This interactive 60-minute webinar will explain FDA's inspectional process and how to prepare for an FDA inspection. The presenter, a veteran in managing food safety audits and of FDA inspection techniques, will answer your questions at the end of the session.
