The ECCP, with the EPBN, hosted a Food and Beverage Committee meeting last 21 November 2017 to discuss Food Additives and the thrust of the newly-established Food and Drug Action Center. Director Cynthia Rosuman of the FDAC discussed the role of the agency in responding to queries and industry concerns. She also responded to questions regarding steps being taken by the FDA to speed up processing time of registrations. Ms. Chrismasita Oblepias and Ms. Tessa Cerbolles, representatives from the CFRR-FDA, presented developments in Food Additives Regulations and answered questions on registration, most notably registration of limited edition products. The Committee Members also talked about the thrust of the Food and Beverage Committee in 2018 and possible projects to be undertaken.
