8:30 am - 5:00 pm

March 28, 2013
8:30 am – 12:00 pm

Crown Plaza Portland Downtown Convention Center
1441 NE 2nd Avenue
Portland, OR 97232
 

The purpose of this public meeting was to discuss the proposed rules to establish standards for growing, harvesting, packing, and holding of produce for human consumption (the produce safety proposed rule) and for current good manufacturing practice and hazard analysis and risk-based preventive controls for human food (the preventive controls for human food proposed rule). They are the first of five proposed rules that would establish the foundation of, and central framework for, the modern food safety system envisioned by Congress in the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. The meeting was also designed to solicit oral and public comments from stakeholders on the proposed rules, inform the public about the rulemaking process (including how to submit comments, data and other information to the rulemaking dockets), and respond to questions about the proposed rules. For general questions about the meeting, contact Juanita Yates, FDA Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, by telephone at 240-402-1731 or e-mail juanita.yates@fda.hhs.gov.
