Join us to hear Dr. Sharon Elyashiv-Barad provide an overview of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Food Contact Notification (FCN) program.


Dr. Elyashiv-Barad is a senior review chemist in the Office of Food Additive Safety in FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. During the webinar, Dr. Elyashiv-Barad will provide general recommendations for manufacturers or suppliers to submit a food contact substance notification and describe details of the notification process, the confidentiality of the information submitted within and the prenotification consultation process.

In addition, Dr. Elyashiv-Barad will review the inventory of effective food contact substance notifications, a database that lists effective premarket notifications for food contact substances that have been demonstrated to be safe for their intended use.
