My consumer packaging regulatory expertise spans 30+ years. Reading the documentation is a great start, but not enough. I invested much time talking with senior officials from the government agencies and industry colleagues to better interpret labeling issues. On a daily basis questions arise about the proper interpretation of the government documentation, and I have been aggressively following up on each issue to best serve as a regulatory expert.
Designing compliant labels also taught me how to think and design strategically to maximize graphics design impact on consumer packaging. Learning this topic was difficult as there are not many experts. The people who have written the regulations do not know all the answers. Since I had to struggle to learn this topic, sharing what I know is my way of giving back.
Below are links to articles I have written.
You will also often find me on the LinkedIn Food Label Community
I usually start off with the history of labeling regulations, so the audience appreciates why we have regulations and why this is so important.
Many interactive examples are provided.
Questions are welcomed throughout the presentation, and encouraged.
