Meeting Details :

This webcast was organized by IFT's Food Chemistry Division.

Improved analytical techniques allow for more comprehensive screening of contaminants and lower detection limits. Increasing legal actions on Prop 65 put manufacturers in risk. Furthermore, FSMA requires a Food Safety Plan, including a chemical hazard analysis, which is bringing a new focus to contaminants, outside of California Proposition 65 requirements. 

This webcast provides an overview of modern contaminant analysis techniques and an overview of Proposition 65 regulations. The practicality of how current analytical technology meets current regulatory requirements is explored and examples illustrate how science and regulations influence each other. An understanding of this interplay will benefit both those responsible for the analysis and the compliance aspects of contaminant programs.

After this webcast, attendees will understand:
- basic principles of contaminant analysis techniques
- validation requirements to withstand legal and regulatory scrutiny
- the general process of conducting a risk assessment and how it relates to current regulatory requirements and the state of analytical technology 
- Proposition 65 regulations, and how to minimize risks through appropriate analytical monitoring
- the considerations in reviewing new hazards and the development of new methods to monitor for those risks
