FEED METHODS WORKSHOP OFFERED
FDA Veterinarian Newsletter September/October 1999 Volume XIV, No V
The Animal Health Institute (AHI)) is sponsoring a workshop entitled "Validation, Format and Transfer of Medicated Feed Methods Workshop." It will be held on October 12, 1999, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Old Town Select, 480 King Street, Alexandria, Virginia.
The purpose of this workshop is to present three Animal Health Institute Guidance Documents entitled "Guidance on the Validation of Analytical Procedures for Medicated Feeds," ADS M23-001.01, "Guidance on Analytical Methods Documents for Medicated Feeds," ADS M23-002.01, and "Guidance on Protocols for Conduct of Method Transfer Trials for Medicated Feed Assays," ADS M23-003.01. These guidance documents were developed with Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) participation. CVM will present the current CVM procedures/requirements for conducting a Sponsor-Monitored Method Trial for Medicated Feeds. Information concerning the guidance documents will be presented which will clarify and streamline the development and evaluation of analytical procedures for medicated feeds. The goal is to improve the process and shorten the regulatory review time for food animal products.
A few of the topics that will be presented include Overview of the Current Process, Importance of Medicated Feed Method Trials from the Surveillance and Compliance Perspective, Presentation of Animal Health Institute Guidance Documents, Validation of Analytical Procedures for Medicated Feeds, Contract Research Organization Perspective, and State Laboratory Perspective.
The registration fee for the workshop is $165, and covers the cost of the registration, continental breakfast, luncheon, and refreshment breaks. The deadline for registration is September 24, 1999.
