Prepare for an FDA Food Facility Inspection:
Virtual Boot Camp
Presented By: Angela Bazigos
Pre-recorded (180 Minutes)
Prepare Your Food Facility for a Successful FDA Inspection - How to Comply with the Agency’s Laws and Regulations
Overview :

Every year, millions of Americans get sick—and some even die—because of foodborne diseases, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And thanks to the Food Safety Modernization Act, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is out to curb that largely preventable problem. For food producers, that means you’d better expect—and prepare for—scrutinizing inspections.

Join regulatory compliance expert Angela Bazigos as she tackles food safety and the FDA’s inspection process in detail in this live audio boot camp. Bazigos will walk you through the FDA’s oversight program and teach you how to comply with the agency’s laws and regulations. She’ll also instruct you on what to do when problems emerge. Plus, you’ll get an insider’s take on how to ace an FDA inspection by following the very checklist the agency uses to spot your deficiencies.

After attending this comprehensive audio event, you will understand: food safety basics, the inspection process, common problems areas, and special considerations for foreign facilities. You’ll come away equipped, not only to prepare for an inspection, but also to handle any citations issued—and to prevent future tickets from being written. If you are in the food industry, attending this soup-to-nuts regulatory compliance boot camp should be a requirement.
