FDA Seminar

Don’t Risk Your FDA Goods Being Held Up at the Border

Pacific Customs Brokers is offering a session related to FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) regulated goods. By attending this seminar, you will gain a better understanding of how the FDA and U.S. Customs interact. The knowledge you will acquire will expedite your shipments rather than trigger costly delays. This session will be of interest to Commercial/Professional Importers, Business Owners, Operation Managers, Carriers, Controllers, Purchasers, Warehouse Managers, Freight Coordinators, Shippers and Receivers. This is a great opportunity for businesses with newly hired logistics staff to receive cost-effective training and/or refresh their awareness of cross-border trade. If you are importing regulated goods on both sides of the border, we offer a full day seminar covering both FDA and CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency).

FDA Regulated Goods & Related Industries:

Seafood, produce, grocery, meat, veterinary medication & devices, livestock feed & pet food, cosmetics, vitamins, medical devices & drugs for humans, radiation emitting devices.

  • FDA Regulatory Responsibilities
