Live webinar on Regulation Updates on Animal Feed and Feed Additives in the EU, USA and China. Get in touch with Pen & Tec now to get your exclusive 50% discount code!

The webinar will be held by Pen & Tec along with Management Forum from 3-4 December.

The selection of regulatory affairs courses will discuss updates on the data requirements and EU legislations for animal feed and feed additive products, with expert speakers explaining how these products can attain approval in the US and Chinese markets (or vice versa).

The re-evaluation of around 500 feed additives by the EU started in 2010, meaning that the EU is now prohibiting the presence of feed additives on the market which no re-evaluation dossier was submitted, or which fail to meet the current European Food Safety Authority’s (EFSA) requirements.

Course Overview

During the conference, you will learn about:

  • What EFSA wants – study design and statistics
  • New approaches to the risk assessment of feed additives which are of botanical origin
  • Strategic options for animal nutrition products in the EU
  • The Chinese approach to feed additives
Who Should Attend?
  • Regulatory and Registration Managers 
  • Business Development Managers
  • Feed Business Operators
  • Strategic Marketing Managers
  • Product Managers
  • R&D Scientists
  • Project Managers
  • Senior Managers seeking a “snapshot” of current regulatory trends and challenges in feeds and feed additives in Europe, China and the USA.
