On Tuesday, February 1, at 2:00 pm EST, CIAA members will have the opportunity to participate in a free webinar on the new food safety legislation passed by Congress in December and signed into law by President Obama this week. CIAA General Counsel John Bode of OFW Law will present a food importer-focused webinar highlighting the changes from current law. This webinar presents a unique opportunity for CIAA members to hear a leading authority on federal food safety law discuss significant changes to the current regulations governing importers.

The new law provides FDA sweeping new enforcement authorities and places substantial new requirements on food importers. Some provisions of the new law have already taken effect. The webinar will focus on information important to food importers.

Due to the considerable reach of this new law, member companies should encourage staff from all levels to participate and become familiar with its provisions.

Registration information will be sent shortly. Importers with further questions should contact CIAA General Counsel John Bode.
