"This rule is massive, there's much to comprehend and limited time remaining to do so," said Richard Sellers, senior vice-president of public policy and education at AFIA. "We have divided the webinar series into four parts to cover the most amount of material, with time for questions, in an efficient manner, and are very grateful to those members who offered to sponsor these webinars."
Each webinar will last two-and-a-half hours. The first three webinars will build upon each other, the fourth will focus on topics related to pet food and pet food ingredients. Speakers for the webinars include AFIA staff experts and officials from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
