Marisa Padula, a Scientific Researcher in the Packaging Technology Center of Brazil’s Institute of Food Sciences and Technology (ITAL), will join Dr. Dennis Keefe, Director of FDA’s Office of Food Additive Safety, and Dr. Elena Emelianova, a Scientific Evaluator in Health Canada’s Food Packaging Materials and Incidental Additives Section, as a guest speaker at Keller and Heckman’s 18th annual Food Packaging Law Seminar. She will discuss MERCOSUR’s legislation on plastics, cellulose, and can coatings, as well as provide an update on MERCOSUR’s efforts to amend the Additives Resolution, GMC Res. No. 32/07.
In addition, the seminar will feature presentations from Keller and Heckman attorneys and scientists on the regulation of food-contact materials in the U.S., European Union, China, Japan, and several other jurisdictions around the world. Hot topics—such as such as the increase in citizen and abandonment petitions, new requirements under the Food Safety and Modernization Act, developments on drug packaging in the U.S., and the fate of EU food-contact legislation—will also be covered.
Keller and Heckman’s Food Packaging Law Seminar will be held on October 10-11, 2017, in Arlington, VA. This seminar is a must-attend for regulatory, scientific, and legal professionals throughout the food packaging supply chain who want to keep up-to-date on the latest developments impacting the food-contact industry.
