Are you responsible for your company's customs compliance into the U.S.? Are your goods regulated by the FDA? Are you in charge of completing the customs documents for your company? Whether you've been doing this for a while, new to this or just getting started and you need an expert to take the time to answer your questions regarding FDA regulated goods entering the U.S., then this seminar is for you. A shipment's successful delivery does not mean a successful release by the FDA has been obtained. In this seminar we will teach you the difference, review FDA requirements and walk you through the entry process as well as new and existing acts and regulations. If you also ship regulated goods into Canada, consider attending our FDA and CFIA bundle.
