Among the many services for international attendees, IME will offer a simultaneous translation of education sessions covering pressing food safety issues, a breakdown of the latest regulatory developments, an examination of the impact of a food safety event and the latest information on the global food safety initiative, equivalency issues with Brazil and an update on CODEX.
