The Regulatory Affairs service offered by FDI crosses the spectrum of the meat, dairy, consumer foods and drinks industries.
FDI’s Regulatory Committee meets on a quarterly basis and also runs in depth briefings and webinars.
In addition to supplying members with technical and legislative developments both nationally and abroad, the service also operates a 'hotline' for companies with specific queries. The Senior Regulatory Affairs Executive monitors and interprets all national and EU food and drink legislation.
Information is disseminated on all legislative and technical issues, which impact on its members. Representation is frequently made to Government Departments and EU institutions both on specific company issues as well as those that affect the entire food and drink industry.
Through its membership of FoodDrinkEurope, FDI is also involved with legislative discussions at an EU level. The Senior Regulatory Affairs Executive also liaises directly with Government agencies such as the Food Safety Authority of Ireland, the Department of Agriculture and Food and the Marine, the Department of Health, etc. to represent the views of industry across a range of issues.
