Food & Beverage Regulations
(Preventive Control for Human Food-PCHF)
Imported Food & Beverage are under the same law as domestically produced food and beverage. One needs to assure that importers and foreign suppliers are compliant, keep relevant records and provide them to the FDA within 24 hours of their request. This is a daunting task if you face the FDA on your own, but it becomes manageable if the proper documentation has been gathered ahead of time and records have been organized and kept.
At KLA, our PCQI experts gather, analyze and keep the records in an FDA ready electronic file. Specifically our PCQI trained and certified team is here to guide your company through the newly implemented FSMA and FSVP regulations.
Dietary Supplement Regulations
FDA has authority over Food Safety Compliance for Dietary Supplements (DS): it regulates domestic as well as imported DS. Though most aspects of DS regulations are covered under CGMP rules, there are additional requirements specific to FSMA that must be adhered to. At KLA we have provided well respected DS importers with specific FSMA guidance and support.
FDA has authority over marketed Cosmetics under separate acts: per FDA “The two most important laws pertaining to cosmetics marketed in the United States are the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FD&C Act) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA).” One should be aware that Cosmetics are not FDA-Approved, but are FDA-Regulated. On a separate note, color additives used in manufacturing Cosmetics are regulated by the FDA regulations on food. KLA will guide you on becoming compliant for all parts of the regulations.
Remove all hassle and doubt when you deal with the Food and Drug Administration.
Food Contact Substances
Food Contact Substances qualify as food (section 201(f) of the FD&C Act.) and therefore are Subject to FDA’s FSVP Rules. Alternatively, Food Contact Substances as defined in section 209(h)(6) of the FD&C Act (21 U.S.C. 348(h)(6)) are “food” for the purposes of FSVP. Furthermore, food contact substances must be approved in the same way that food products are. KLA will guide you in all compliance aspects of the regulations.
Medical Device Regulations
The framework governing the regulation of medical devices is established in the Medical Device Amendments to the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (FFD&C) Act. At KLA our expert consultants make sure that appropriate interaction and communication with the FDA takes place as we prepare your request for new or modified devices for approval by the FDA. We can also handle a request for classification, device tracking, registration of foreign establishments associated with devices production, declaration of conformity
Logistics and Transportation
Transportation is an industry sector that was not previously regulated by the FDA. FDA has now put in place Sanitary Transportation Rules that will be slowly but surely implemented with shippers.
The PCAF regulations are actually more complex than the PCHF regulations. The consequences for non-compliance can quickly cause death to animals, can be passed down to human food in case of cattle animals and such animals destined to human consumption. As a result, your business can suffer tremendously.
