Agenda | Cancellation Policy | Enrollment and Location Information

Participants in AIB Internationalís seminar Labeling of FDA Regulated Food Products acquire the skills to properly use and display labeling elements on their food packages during two days of discussions and practical exercises that clarify every detail of the FDA labeling requirements.

Although the course emphasizes the basics of labeling, it also serves as an excellent review and update for those with greater experience. Some participants attend more than once to find out the latest changes to regulations and to gain insight into potential labeling issues.

Seminar Guest Speaker

James E. Hoadley, PhD, serves as a Senior Consultant with EAS Consulting Group. Prior to joining EAS, Hoadley spent 20 years with the FDA, including a decade as a senior regulatory scientist in the Office of Nutritional Products, Labeling and Dietary Supplements with primary responsibility for food label claim regulations.

Hoadley was involved in some of the FDA's most precedent-setting health claim issues, such as how to deal with food label claims based on authoritative statements, and the 1999 Pearson v. Shalala federal court decision that led to qualified health claims. He also participated in the development and implementation of the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act.

He began his work at the FDA in 1987 as a research scientist in nutrition at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition and later worked as a toxicologist, performing food additive and GRAS petition safety reviews in FDA's Office of Premarket Approval.

Hoadley earned his PhD in toxicology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, and did postdoctoral research in nutrition at the University of Florida. He received his bachelor of science from Ohio State University.
