• Date: June 11 - 13, 2018
  • Held At: Royal Sonesta Harbor Court Baltimore, Baltimore , Maryland

The Food Packaging Summit is a forum for regulatory affairs specialists to exchange knowledge and learn from seasoned experts in government and industry. The Spring 2018 event will open on Day One with a workshop on Proposition 65 compliance considerations for manufacturers of food packaging, including how to determine if products fall within the safe harbor or require labeling. The main educational program on Day Two will start with a panel of speakers from U.S. FDA covering developments in the use of in silico tools for risk assessment and other research under way at the Department of Food Contact Notifications. Experts from academia and industry will follow with an examination of carcinogenicity assays and efforts to reform the IARC Monographs Program.

The afternoon will feature practical sessions on meeting compliance responsibilities in China and on demonstrating the safety of impurities in food contact materials. The program will conclude with a consultation among scientists, policy and communications experts on changing the conversation about plastic packaging and overcoming state and local initiatives to ban these products. All are invited for a dinner cruise of the harbor that evening, and FDCPMC members are encouraged to attend the Full Committee Business Meeting on Day Three to discuss regulatory developments worldwide and our Committee's related advocacy. Join us as we return to the Royal Sonesta for another great three days on Baltimore's Inner Harbor!

Preceding the summit, we'll be hosting the 2018 Summer PMDAC (Pharmaceutical and Medical Device Applications Committee) Meeting on Monday, June 11th. Get more out of your experience by registering for both!
