Luncheon in Olathe to Address Regulatory Compliance in Animal Health Industry

The Department of Agricultural Economics at Kansas State University will present a luncheon seminar on animal health regulations from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., Thursday, June 23, at the K-State Olathe Campus Great Plains Room.

The seminar, the first in the Animal Health Corridor Lecture Series, will provide regulatory guidance to companies to help improve their competitiveness in the global market.

Dr. Steven Vaughn, director of the Office of New Animal Drug Evaluation from the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Veterinary Medicine, will address and provide 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 creating a new process to evaluate innovative new technologies.

In addition, Stephanie Batliner, chair of the Generic Animal Drug Alliance, will speak.

“Regulatory compliance is critical in our current environment,” said Vincent Amanor-Boadu, associate professor of agricultural economics at K-State. “In the feedback we have received from the animal health industry, professionals have continually expressed the need to have more access to expertise and resources regarding regulatory affairs.”

Through educating industry professionals on regulatory issues, the newly formed Animal Health Supply Chain program seeks to build more credibility in regulatory compliance and thus, create expanded job opportunities, Amanor-Boadu said.
