Strong pressure from industry groups and the general population have meant that a slew of new labeling requirements for genetically modified organisms (GMOs) will go into effect in 2018. But those regulations are filled with caveats and fine details—and in many cases vary from one state to another. This is a complicated field to navigate—you can’t simply Google your way to compliance.
Rely on guidance from Norma Skolnik, who has more than 35 years of regulatory experience in the pharmaceutical and dietary supplement industries. In this information-packed session, she will outline both the history of this controversial topic and the industry standards for GMOs as they exist today—including how to abide by global, federal, and state rules and requirements. While a recently-passed federal law preempts state laws, there are tons of unresolved issues that can complicate your compliance. Don’t get caught off guard.
Skolnik will outline the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) current position on GMOs and genetically modified foods, detail the agency’s biotechnology policy and consultation program, and cover worldwide GMO labeling regulations. Skolnik will also dive into state initiatives—including Vermont’s GMO labeling law. Plus, she’ll explain the U. S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) role in issuing GMO labeling regulations.
Skolnik knows this field better than almost anyone. Here is what she’ll teach you:
