Are you exporting food into the US or plan to do it? Has your shipment ever been delayed by the US FDA or placed in FDA detention? Do you know what to do when the unexpected happens? Detentions can result in delays to market, increased expenses in warehouse storage, and frustrated buyers with orders that fall short of expectation and delivery. This can be costly in both reputation and dollars. Join our FDA Detention Expert, Annie Hughes, as we dive deeply into FDA Detentions.

In this educational webinar, you’ll learn more about what can trigger an FDA Detention, which industries are impacted the most, what it takes to get your product out of detention, and how our experts work with the FDA to help.

Learning objectives:

  • Reasons for the detention
  • How to get your products released
