The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), the National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) and Feedstuffs will host a webinar from 2:00-5:00pm EST on 11 December 2013. The webinar will address current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) and hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for food for animals.
The webinar will cover information published in the Federal Register originally published on 29 October 2013.  The release marks the latest set of proposed rules issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to implement the Food Safety Modernisation Act (FSMA).
“The proposed preventive control rule for animal feed and pet food is another important step in FDA’s ongoing implementation of FSMA,” said David Fairfield, NGFA vice president of feed services. “This webinar will help those impacted gain a better understanding of the proposed requirements.”
Key questions that will be answered during the webinar include:
- When will the rule be effective?
- How are different sized companies impacted?
- What CGMP are proposed; who needs to comply?
- What needs to be in my written hazard identification and preventive controls plan?
- How do I develop preventive controls for the facility?

Featured speakers include:
- Richard Sellers senior vice president, legislative and regulatory affairs, AFIA;
- David Fairfield, vice president, feed services, NGFA;
- Jolyda Swaim, principal attorney, and John Dillard, associate attorney, OFW Law; and
- Dr Daniel G. McChesney, director of the Office of Surveillance and Compliance, FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine.

“These rules will have a major impact on our members. In the webinar we will help attendees create a plan to implement the preventive control rules,” said Richard Sellers, AFIA senior vice president of legislative and regulatory affairs.
