Welcome to the November 2019 edition of EASeNews. You’ll see a new format to our newsletter this month, our effort to help you more quickly access the information of greatest interest to you. All the same great regulatory content is here, and with just a click of a button, you’ll be taken directly to it. We hope you enjoy the update and as always please feel free to provide any feedback on this or any other area of interest.
As we assembled the content for the November issue, the theme of product safety resonated throughout. Contamination prevention is a requirement across FDA regulated industries, ensuring product safety and reducing the likelihood of contamination and adverse events. In this issue you will find our Issue of the Month on establishing environmental monitoring programs; an Ask the Expert on Adulterated Foods; an EAS in the News section full of links to articles and webinars on strategies to identify and protect against allergens and pathogens all authored and presented by EAS’s team of very talented regulatory consultants. I am sure this issue will be one of our most pertinent, no matter the product area in which you work.
But, while we work to automate solutions, let’s not forget the human factor of our industry. It is the people, from management to line workers who are the real machines behind innovation and who, through their actions, will always have the strongest impact on product safety. Ensure, no matter the job function that training and messaging of the human factor’s importance stays constant and relevant. EAS is always here to assist and is just a phone call or email away.
