This video explains, in under five minutes, what product regulatory compliance is. Assent Compliance’s Director of Product Strategy, Brandon Waselnuk, gives an excellent overview of what regulations are involved when producing a product. He reviews various regulations such as REACH, which is an E.U. regulation relating to restricted substances in products, and the Dodd-Frank Act Section 1502, which involves the use of conflict minerals. To learn about various industry regulations, visit the Assent Compliance blog here: http://assentcompliance.com/blog/ Product compliance is an essential part of producing any product. When creating products, companies need to understand what materials are being used and ensure the markets they are selling to do not restrict these substances. They also need to ensure the materials are ethically sourced to comply with regulations around conflict mineral sourcing and anti-human trafficking. Finally, companies need to make sure their products are safe and the factories where these products are produced operate ethically. For more information on how Assent can help your company with product regulatory compliance, contact us at [email protected] or visit our website: http://www.assentcompliance.com/

The Role of Food Safety & Regulation in Protecting Health as a Human Right A public health seminar recorded on April 10, 2017 featuring Mary E. Alvarez, EIAO and Jasmine Hale EIAO SEMINAR ABSTRACT Enforcement Investigators and Analysis Officers (EIAO) with USDA/ Food Safety and Inspection Services (FSIS) are trained in surveillance and enforcement to conduct foodborne illness investigations, and other vital functions to protect public health. During the past 2 years, FSIS has removed thousands of pounds of products from commerce because they were adulterated, illegal, or otherwise posed a significant threat to consumers. In the case of a foodborne illness outbreak, FSIS investigators and officers work with epidemiologists from other health partners to trace the path of foodborne illness back through the supply chain and perform emergency preparedness and response activities. Duting the presentation, participants gained an understanding of the regulatory and enforcement methodologies that keep our food supply safe. SPEAKER BIOGRAPHIES Mary E. Alvarez, EIAO is attending Bay Path University under the USDA's -FSIS Food Based Science Program and is completing her degree in Business focusing on Leadership and Organizational Skills. Jasmine Hale, EIAO proudly attended HBCU (Historically Black College & University) alumnus from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff. She graduated with a B.S. in Agriculture-Animal Science in December 2013. She came into Food Safety and Inspection services via the USDA Pathways Internship Program.

http://www.ceway.eu This clip presents the steps which cosmetic product manufacturers need to take in order to be able to sell their products in the EU. The rough steps for placing the cosmetic products on the market are the following: classify your product, assign a responsible person, compile the product information file, notify your product to the CPNP, put your cosmetic product on the EU market. You have to remember that you should also always keep the product information file updated. For the classification of your products you should check the definition of cosmetic products in the EU, which can be found in the EU cosmetics regulation 1223/2009. The second step is to assign a responsible person. This is requested the EU cosmetics regulation by saying: "Only cosmetic products for which a legal or natural person is designated within the Community as "responsible person" shall be placed on the market." Responsible person has to be designated by a written mandate and has to accept this role in writing. Product information file (PIF) is a basis for pre-market notification of cosmetic products. The product information file contains various information about the cosmetic product, including raw material specifications, finished products specifications, packaging specifications, cosmetic product safety report (CPSR), labelling etc. The last step before you can place the cosmetic product on the market is the notification of your product to the CPNP portal. Product notification has to be performed by the responsible person. The links which are mentioned in the clip are the following: - cosmetic product definition: http://www.ceway.eu/is-your-product-even-a-cosmetic-product/ - responsible person: http://www.ceway.eu/european-responsible-person-rp/ - product information file: http://www.ceway.eu/product-information-file-pif/ - cosmetic notification: http://www.ceway.eu/notification-process/

Why? The custom will hold your products, or even destroy them if you can’t offer any certifications to prove your products have reached the local product safety standard. Most importers don’t know much about what kind certifications they need for custom clearance or Amazon selling. Even a lot of Chinese manufacturers may give you wrong information, because usually they are not the expert at the point. That’s why we decided to make this video, to share some basic knowledge of compliance certifications. In the 1st part of this video, I explained who will need you to provide certifications, and also in what kind circumstance you can avoid to provide. In the 2nd part, I explained what kind of bad consequence you maybe have, if you don’t have certifications, or you can’t provide it in time. A very good case is also shared, to explain Amazon’s strict solution for no certifications. In the 3rd part, I made a list of certifications that you probably need for importing to US. In the 4th part, I shared my experience about how you can get product certifications.

http://www.ceway.eu This clip presents what is a cosmetics product information file (PIF) and which information it consists of. Each product placed on the EU market needs to have a product information file (PIF) compiled. The product information file has to be kept by the Responsible person at their address specified on the cosmetic product label, readily accessible in electronic or other format to the competent authorities of the Member state in which the PIF is kept, available in a language which can be easily understood by the local competent authorities, for a period of ten years following the date on which the last batch of the cosmetic product was placed on the EU market. Product information file has to be kept at one single address in the EU and it must always be kept updated and compliant with the regulation 1223/2009. PIF has to contain the following information and data: a description of the cosmetic product, cosmetic product safety report, a description of the method of manufacturing and a statement on good manufacturing practice (GMP) compliance, proof of the effect claimed of the product, any data on animal testing. Cosmetic product safety report is then further divided into 2 parts: part A is the safety information, and part B is the cosmetic product safety assessment, which has to be performed by a properly qualified safety assessor. Safety assessor needs to be knowledgeable in the EU regulation 1223/2009 and needs to have formal proof of qualifications from the fields of pharmacy, toxicology, medicine or a similar discipline, or a course recognized as equivalent by an EU Member State.

"The Most Dangerous Monopoly: When Caution Kills" by @LearnLiberty ► Get Learn Liberty updates in your inbox! http://LearnLiberty.org/subscribe Everyone wants the items they buy to be safe to use or consume. Howard Baetjer of Towson University explains that when products undergo third-party certification processes to determine their safety, market forces are able to optimize the amount of testing conducted and consumers can use the information provided by certification firms to make their own decisions. It is difficult to say how much testing is enough: another test can always be run on a product, but at some point the benefit of the extra testing outweighs the costs. In a free-market system, competition among certification firms allows the market to work as it should and prevents both under- and over-testing of products. Conversely, when the government holds the monopoly on safety standards, products are likely to be over-tested, delaying their entry into the market and making them more expensive. Sometimes the costs of such delays cannot be quantified; lives can be lost while life-saving medicines are held up in safety-testing processes.
