Silver Spring, MD - The upcoming American Herbal Product Association (AHPA) educational tele-seminar will address complying with the requirements of the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004. Any food (including dietary supplements) that contains a major food allergen must meet the disclosure requirements of the new law when labeled on or after January 1, 2006.
The tele-seminar will be held at 12 noon, Eastern, on Friday, December 2. A panel with legal, regulatory, and scientific expertise will discuss:
- The origin and rationale of the new law.
- Compliance deadlines.
- The major food allergens required to be labeled.
- The petition and notification process for exemption from food allergen labeling requirements.
- Proper labeling of major food allergens present in dietary supplements.
AHPA’s tele-seminars are much less expensive than hiring an attorney or consultant to conduct such training: $195 per connection for AHPA member companies, and $495 per connection for non-member companies. The registration fee includes an unedited transcript of the training session and one Certificate of Completion, an important addition to cGMP compliance training and personnel files; additional certificates are $25 each.
Registration takes place in advance only. Deadline is November 21, 2005.
