In this webinar we highlight key changes in USDA’s new Consolidated Inspection Guide to help assure your institution has a proper inspection management process in place. Learn about the latest uses and abuses of information available through the federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and get useful tips on how you can monitor and manage this information.

• USDA’s new Consolidated Inspection Guide contains new information which should be incorporated into your inspection management process. Among the additions is crucial language that could be used to appeal citations that have been erroneously issued.
• Recent FOIA requests have sought significant amounts of photographic and written information related to inspections, which is increasingly forming the basis of targeted campaigns. Now more than ever, research facilities should develop strategies for identifying and managing publicly-available information.
