EAS Consulting Group, leaders in FDA, USDA and state regulatory issues, is hosting a three-part series on CBD and hemp regulations.

Testing Requirements from Farm to Table

Presented by Paul Burns, Vice President of Sales, Certified Laboratories, Dietary Supplements & Botanicals & Tim Lombardo, EAS Senior Director, Food Consulting Services

What are the testing requirements for raw materials and finished goods? How can those results be interpreted? A determination of safety and specifications compliance must be demonstrated throughout the manufacturing process, with differing tests and results requirements for food and supplement products. Learn what you need to know and what questions to ask of your laboratory testing partner to ensure your raw materials, in-process and finished goods meet your and your customers’ expectations.

Part Two
October 27, 2021

The Manufacturing Process, from Biomass and Beyond

Presented by Tim Lombardo, Senior Director, Food Consulting Services & Omar Oyarzabal, Ph.D. EAS Independent Consultant

Once CBD is extracted from the biomass it can be added to products such as food, supplements and personal care products, but what are the best practices for doing so? Differing safety regulations are in place depending on the type of products produced, but all manufacturing processes have one thing in common: a demonstration of safety. Understanding Good Manufacturing Practices and how they apply is paramount. Learn more about the benefits and challenges of water and oil extractions, ensuring sanitary transport of materials and goods and more.

A Potpourri of Federal and State Regulations and Prohibitions

Presented by Tim Lombardo, EAS Senior Director, Food Consulting Services & Tara Lin Couch, Ph.D., Senior Director, Dietary Supplement and Tobacco Services

The CBD and hemp industry faces a confusing array of requirements. From USDA’s 2018 Farm Bill covering the legal manufacture of CBD isolates to FDA’s declaration of a federally illegal product, to a patchwork of state regulations, understanding the what’s and how’s of regulatory requirements is daunting.

In part one of our series we’ll look at where regulations stand today with regards to manufacturing and labeling as well as highlight some disparities from state to state.
