Understanding GRAS Submissions and Avoiding Data Pitfalls- Meet FDA Requirements

An EAS Premium Webinar

Presented by Robin Guy and Robert Kapp, Ph.D.

Before a substance can be legally added to food in the U.S., with rare exceptions, it must be either an approved food additive or determined to be generally recognized as safe (GRAS) for use in food.
Developing a food ingredient so that it is ready for GRAS submission can be a time consuming and costly process. Understanding the major components of a GRAS submission, the details of the required sections, and factors FDA considers when reviewing GRAS submissions are imperative to a successful submission and the receipt of subsequent “No Questions” response from FDA.

Join EAS Consulting Group, leaders in FDA regulatory consulting services for a review of GRAS notification requirements, strategies to strengthen preparations and communications with FDA and avoiding GRAS dossier compilation and submission pitfalls. EAS has prepared numerous GRAS notifications, helping clients to gain a new foothold in the marketplace.

This webinar could be one of the most valuable hours of time invested all year.
