The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) is offering a 2013 Regulatory Training Short Course November 20-21. The course will be held at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel in Arlington, Va. 

"This course is a high-demand seminar that always sells out quickly," said Leah Wilkinson, AFIA's director of ingredients, pet food and state affairs. "It is AFIA's third time offering the course and we anticipate not only a full room yet again, but have lined up influential speakers discussing topics beneficial to those serving the regulatory side of the feed industry."

The programming is an opportunity for regulatory professionals in the feed, ingredient and pet food industries to come together to develop the necessary skills to lead their company through the regulatory maze. The course was created for regulatory directors with several years of industry experience and will cover advanced topics and regulatory strategies. The seminar will include topics such as the Food Safety Modernization Act, Working with State Regulators and AAFCO and Preparing for and Dealing with a FDA Inspection.

This year, AFIA will offer an introduction to feed regulation in the U.S. seminar prior to the two-day event for attendees new to the regulatory area for an additional fee. The seminar has limited attendance in order to focus more on individual instruction and will be held on November 19, at the Renaissance Arlington Capital View Hotel.
