Upcoming Event: FDA Basics Webinar on the Import Entry Process

November 29, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

American consumers increasingly rely of goods manufactured in foreign countries: in Fiscal Year 2011, roughly 24 million shipments of FDA-regulated products were imported into the US. Regulating that large volume of varied shipments is a complicated and unending task, and one of great importance in the realm of consumer protection. Every day there are FDA field investigators in offices throughout the country and in FDA headquarters dedicated to providing this consumer protection.

The FDA will host a webinar “FDA’s Import Operations: How FDA regulates imported products”, Wednesday, November 30th at 11:00 AM ET. The featured speaker, John Verbeten, is a branch director for FDA’s Division of Import Operations and Policy and a former field investigator. He will give an overview and answer questions about FDA’s consumer protection activities related to imported products.

There are a limited number of spots available for the webinar. Materials from the webinar will also be made available on the FDA website following the presentation.

Learn more about the webinar, including instructions about how to join.

    The very important task of checking everything that comes across our borders is overwhelming because of the huge quantity of things coming in. The great debate of “more regulation” or “less regulation” or “privatization” comes to mind when i think about this as it pertains to the FDA. Very interested in seeing the webinar.

    In my opinion, most of the “bad food” issues seem to come from within our borders. I think that speaks volumes about the tremendous job that the FDA is doing protecting us from imported food goods…
