AT K-STATE OLATHE: SEMINAR ON ANIMAL HEALTH INDUSTRY COMPLIANCE FEATURES FDA ANIMAL DRUG EVALUTION LEADER

OLATHE -- The department of agricultural economics at Kansas State University will present a luncheon seminar on regulatory compliance in the animal health industry from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Thursday, June 23, at K-State Olathe. The seminar will provide animal health companies with regulatory guidance to enhance their global competitiveness.

The seminar speakers are Steven Vaughn, director of the Office of New Animal Drug Evaluation at the Food and Drug Administration's Center for Veterinary Medicine, and Stephanie Batliner, chair of the Generic Animal Drug Alliance. Vaughn's presentation will include remedies for common pitfalls the FDA observes in many organizations' regulatory adherence. He also will discuss the agency's new Innovation Initiative, which focuses on the process for evaluating innovative new technologies. Batliner will provide an industry perspective on the regulatory process and share regulatory lessons learned.

"Regulatory compliance is critical to organizations' competitiveness," said Vincent Amanor-Boadu, associate professor of agribusiness economics and management at K-State. "This seminar aims to contribute to regulatory knowledge that eliminates unnecessary costs that adversely affect the animal health supply chain."

Tickets cover the seminar and lunch, and are available online at http://www.ageconomics.ksu.edu under the Events tab. Register by Tuesday, June 14, to receive early bird prices: $50 per person and $170 for four individuals from the same company.
