Keller and Heckman Announces: Food Packaging Law Seminar

Date: Aug 31, 2016

Keller and Heckman’s internationally-recognized Food Packaging team of attorneys and scientists is pleased to offer its 17th Annual Food Packaging Law Seminar on October 19-20, 2016, in Arlington, VA. This seminar, acclaimed as “the annual seminar to attend,” is designed for regulatory, scientific, and legal professionals to keep up-to-date on laws and regulations relating to food packaging and other food-contact materials in all areas of the world.

Previous Keller and Heckman Food Packaging Law Seminars have garnered praise from participants. One attendee described the program as “an excellent opportunity to hear about the basics along with the latest challenges. The expertise of Keller and Heckman is invaluable and they are more than open to some one-on-one time.” Another participant said, “this program is a must for anyone in the packaging regulation field.”

This year’s offering is poised to be similarly well-received; program highlights include an introduction to the regulation of food packaging in the U.S. and abroad, with guest speakers from Health Canada and MERCOSUR. The program will also provide valuable insight on customer assurance issues and hot topics such as FDA's Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) program and California's Proposition 65.  Some current issues that go beyond food packaging, in particular reform to the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and FDA’s eCTD requirements for Drug Master Files (DMF), also will be addressed.

Registration for the seminar is currently open. Pricing and event details can be found here.
