AFIA Hosts Facility Inspection Package Training with APHIS

The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) is hosting an interactive training and question-and-answer session with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS). Titled, “Facility Inspection Package Training by USDA-APHIS,” attendees will hear directly from APHIS staff on how to better prepare export health certificate packets and ready their facilities for inspections. The training will take place on Jan. 25, 2023, in conjunction with the 2023 International Production & Processing Expo, taking place Jan. 24-26.

“Anyone who is preparing export certificates or facility inspections for rendered products, animal-based feed or pet food, will find this program to be valuable,” said Mallory Gaines, AFIA’s director of market access and trade policy. “Members will have the opportunity to engage directly with representatives from the APHIS field staff and the Riverdale headquarters staff.”

The program will provide an overview of the agency and trade facilitation, a training on facility inspection packages and convene breakout sessions with APHIS staff.

Online registration for IPPE and the Facility Inspection Package Training by USDA-APHIS program is now open. The education program runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET on Jan. 25. Interested individuals are encouraged to register by Jan. 6 to receive the early-bird rate of $260. After that, the registration increases to $300. This event is sponsored by the AFIA, Pet Food Institute and North American Renderers Association. Members of these organizations should contact their representatives for a discount coupon to attend the event at the member rate. If a member registers for the meeting without the coupon code, the AFIA cannot reimburse the cost.
