FDA to Hold Public Meetings on Bioterrorism Rule

by Healthy News - 5/13/2005

Back to Healthy News

The Food and Drug Administration has scheduled five meetings in June around the nation to focus on the recordkeeping requirements set by the Bioterrorism Act. Section 306 requires "...persons (excluding farms, restaurants, and certain others) who manufacturer, process, pack, transport, distribute, receive, hold, or import food" to maintain certain records for two years. Companies must keep and be able to provide records regarding the source of ingredients in and the destination of their food products, including dietary supplement products.

In December 2004, FDA filed the final rule (posted online at: www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/frrecord.html) and draft guidance (online at: www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/secgui12.html) to implement the record keeping requirements under section 306. In the upcoming meetings, FDA intends to explain the final rule and draft guidance and answer questions. The meeting schedule is:

* June 7: Mariott Hotel, 775 Brasillia Ave., Kansas City, MO

* June 8: Los Angeles Airport Mariott, 5855 West Century Blvd., Los Angeles, CA

* June 9: Harvey Wiley Federal Building, 5100 Paint Branch Pkwy., College Park, MD

* June 14: Embassy Suites at Minneapolis Airport, 7901 34th Ave., Bloomington, MN

* June 15: Renaissance Waverly, 2450 Galleria Pkwy., Atlanta, GA

All meetings will be held 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time. Those who wish to attend any of these meetings must register at least five days in advance by providing name, title, company name, address, telephone number, email address and fax number. Register online at www.cfsan.fda.gov/~dms/fsbtac26.html, via fax to Isabelle Howes at 202-479-6801, or onsite (space available).

The Federal Register announcement of these meetings is posted online at www.fda.gov/OHRMS/DOCKETS/98fr/05-9536.pdf.
