Winston-Salem, NC — Inmar, a company that operates intelligent commerce networks, today announced that its product recall management experts will team up with GS1 US and the Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) to facilitate “Efficient and Effective Product Recall Management,” a course for manufacturers and their retail trading partners.
The course, scheduled for Nov. 5, 2014 at GMA headquarters in Washington, DC, is designed to prepare regulatory, safety and quality assurance professionals in the food and CPG industries for managing a recall, from system components, the decision to recall, obligations to federal and state agencies, notifying customers, product handling and disposition, and more.
Training will focus on the end-to-end recall management process, starting with a review of the critical components of recall preparedness and flowing through to notification using Rapid Recall Exchange®, compliance reporting and reverse logistics. The training will then break into two “tracks:” one for QA/food safety/regulatory personnel, the other for individuals responsible for communicating and coordinating the recall process with retail partners.
