Keller and Heckman Announces: Food Packaging Law Seminar

Date: Jul 11, 2017

For the 18th consecutive year, Keller and Heckman will host its renowned Food Packaging Law Seminar on October 10-11, 2017 in Arlington, VA. This seminar is a must-attend for regulatory, scientific, and legal professionals throughout the food packaging supply chain who want to keep up-to-date on the latest developments impacting the food-contact industry. A former attendee described the conference as an “excellent seminar for a complete overview of U.S. FDA, EU, China, and the rest of the global food packaging regulations, challenges, and latest changes.”

Keller and Heckman’s food packaging attorneys and scientists will provide attendees with guidance on how to attain clearances for food-contact materials in jurisdictions around the world, from the U.S. and South America to Europe and the Middle East to China, Japan, Korea, Australia, and New Zealand. Presentations will also cover hot topics impacting the food packaging industry, such as the increase in citizen and abandonment petitions, new requirements under the Food Safety and Modernization Act, and developments on drug packaging in the U.S.

Hailed as providing “tremendous networking opportunities,” the seminar will afford attendees the opportunity to talk one-on-one with Keller and Heckman attorneys and scientists, and to ask questions of our guest speakers, Dr. Dennis Keefe, Director of FDA’s Office of Food Additive Safety, and Dr. Elena Emelianova, a Scientific Evaluator in Health Canada’s Food Packaging Materials and Incidental Additives Section.

Registration for the Food Packaging Law Seminar is now open. Pricing and event details can be found here.
