Rome 19th June 2015 – Practical seminar: how to defend your business from official controls and food frauds

On 19th June 2015 I will be in Rome for a full day practical seminar on how to defend your business from official controls, non compliance events and food frauds. The course is hosted and organized by Eurofishmarketleading firm specialized in marketing, training and legal services on seafood sector, and SIMeVeP (Italian

Aim of the course is to offer to the food business operators the instruments to comprehend which are their rights and their obligations during the official controls and the administrative and/or criminal proceedings which follow the non-compliance.

We will analyze the main issues linked to the sampling and testing phase and how to manage an inspection from the competent authority, which kind of measures the competent authorities can apply (i.e. seizures), how to handle a food recall and how to prevent unintentional frauds (i.e. Horsemeat scandal), with practical examples.

The EU Commission is working on a revision of the Reg. (CE) n. 882/2004 on official controls on foodstuffs, and within this context is also evaluating if establishing a common definition of “food frauds” and how to build a credible enforcement system to prevent such incidents.

It is of pivotal importance to be updated on those aspects, since the publication of the new Regulation (in origin fixed for the end of 2015) probably will be in the first half of 2016.

Language of the course: Italian. For readers from foreign countries I remember that I can organize also sessions via webinar/distance learning.
