The leading experts in the field of the natural products industry and former U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials Daniel Fabricant, PhD, president and CEO of Natural Products Association (NPA) and Corey Hilmas, MD, PhD, NPA’s senior vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs, will host a five-day training dubbed “The FDA Experience” on October 16 to 20.  The hands-on educational event will give attendees access to both current and former regulators, and training from the same experts who trained FDA officials.

“This is the premier educational event for the industry and a rare opportunity to hear directly from current and former FDA officials,” said Fabricant. “This is the first five-day intensive (good manufacturing practice) training that the industry has had access to, and we expect to see a lot of interest from across the industry. This is a rare opportunity to have industry and FDA field investigators in the same room learning together.”

The five-day training is for those who have already completed a one- or two-day GMP course, including heads of quality and heads of marketing; chemists, laboratory personnel, regulatory employees, botanical experts; FDA district office personnel and field investigators, third-party certifying and auditors, and experts providing certification consultations.

The FDA Experience goes above and beyond the typical educational course by administering exams to attendees and providing a certification of completion for the Part 111 GMP course.
