Dear Readers,

Edward A. Steele

As 2019 comes to a close, it is my honor to thank you for your interest in EAS Consulting Group and convey my appreciation for your dedication to improving your understanding of FDA regulatory requirements through our EASeNews, the many articles published in trade magazines and websites, our webinars and regulatory compliance seminars. It has been another banner year for EAS, and it goes without saying, we value the trust you place in us to help you ensure your GMP and FSMA regulatory compliance is sound, your products are appropriately labeled, your technical submissions such as GRAS, DMF, 510(k) and others are prepared with the diligent attention to detail that you, and FDA, expects. Thank you for the trust you place in EAS each day and we will always strive to ensure that trust is well placed.

In particular, as we have received such good feedback on the utility (and, of course, the price) of our complimentary compliance seminars, I am pleased to say we upped our game and by year’s end will have offered 23 webinars hosted by our many talented independent regulatory consultants (most now available on-demand) ranging in topics from GMP observations for dietary supplements and pharmaceuticals to FDA’s move to a new QMS for medical devices, to what exactly is GRAS and what goes into the preparation of a dossier and more. Thousands registered for our webinars this year, which is an amazing accomplishment and indication that we are on the right track ensuring that you have an understanding of FDA requirements.

As always, when more information was needed or additional questions were raised, EAS consultants answered the call, by planes, trains and automobiles, as well as the good old-fashioned telephone, providing worldwide assistance, in many cases on very short notice. We helped firms to thwart or respond to a crisis and provided routine and actionable recommendations for improvements to a variety of issues such as SOPs, SDS, equipment sanitation, labeling challenges and more. Our in-house trainings saw a banner year as clients contracted EAS to dedicate focused training opportunities for some of their most pertinent challenges. We are pleased that more and more firms are taking a proactive approach to regulatory compliance as it is always easier to correct an issue before it becomes a full-blown problem.

I wish you a safe and happy holiday season. If ever EAS can be of assistance, please know we are always just a phone call or email away.
