FDLI: Reportable Food Registry Webinar

Food and Drug Law Institute is running a series of "webinars."  The next one, on the Reportable Food Registry, will take place September 10.  From the FDLI website:

Program Description

The Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act (FDAAA) requires FDA to establish a Reportable Food Registry and an electronic portal through which a "responsible party" must submit instances of "reportable food".  A "reportable food" is an article of food other than infant formula and dietary supplements for which there is a reasonable probability that the use of, or exposure to, such article of food will cause serious adverse health consequences or death to humans or animals.  The Registry becomes operational on Sept. 8, 2009.  What are the expected effects that the Registry's obligations will have on a food manufacturers existing practices, and, what are industry's concerns to comply? 

Section 417 of the FDC Act imposes substantial investigative, reporting, notification, and recordkeeping obligations on "responsible parties".  This webinar will review the new obligations imposed, the effects that those obligations can be expected to have on existing practices, and issues of concern that have been raised by industry.
