June 08, 2017

Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, will be sponsoring the welcome dinner at the National Aquarium and exhibiting at the 13th Biennial International Symposium on Worldwide Regulation of Food Packaging. This Symposium, hosted by the Plastics Industry Association (PLASTICS) Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Packaging Materials Committee (FDCPMC), will be taking place in Baltimore, Maryland from June 13th-16th, 2017.

This is a must-attend event for regulatory authorities to compare national and regional approaches to addressing emerging safety considerations for food packaging materials, learning about the latest scientific developments, and hearing diverse industry perspectives from global companies and trade associations. This year's Symposium will also feature a new workshop, which has been designed specifically for individuals who are new to regulatory affairs in order to help them gain the essential skills required to handle compliance and customer assurance. Attendees from around the world will gather to discuss global regulatory compliance for food packaging materials and to offer guidance on overcoming regulatory challenges. A few of the topics that will be covered during the Symposium include:

  • A new interactive training session led by longtime legal experts and regulatory affairs practitioners
  • Presentations on China's new regulatory system with a focus on new materials
  • Discussions on testing requirements for food-contact materials in the EU
  • The latest guidance from U.S. FDA for Food-Contact Notifications

Intertek Health, Environmental & Regulatory Services (HERS) is proud to be a sponsor of the National Aquarium Tour and Dinner, which will be taking place on June 14th, 2017 at 6:00pm. This event is open to all Symposium speakers, attendees, and guests.
