HISTORY

Richard Chiang worked for the FDA for 13 years beginning as a field investigator and entry reviewer and later worked at the FDA’s headquarters Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN), managing field programs and providing guidance to FDA Compliance Officers and Investigators. Richard also worked at the FDA headquarters Prior Notice Center and eventually served as the Special Assistant to the Associate Commissioner for Regulatory Affairs.

WORK EXPERIENCE

Most recently, Richard supervised the FDA Los Angeles Import Operations Compliance Officers, who are the FDA personnel that determine if shipments imported through ports in the Los Angeles District are detained, released, or refused admission into the US. Richard’s extensive FDA experience at both the Los Angeles field office and at FDA headquarters gives him a level of insight into FDA regulations, procedures, and policies, and practices that few in the industry have. Furthermore, because Richard supervised Compliance operations at one of the largest ports in the United States, he has expertise in all commodity types regulated by FDA including foods including dietary supplements, cosmetics, pharmaceutical drugs, medical devices, and FDA-regulated electronic devices.

In addition, Richard worked extensively with US Customs and Border Protection, USDA, Fish and Wildlife, and other government agencies that overlap with FDA jurisdiction. Thus, Richard can provide a comprehensive approach and solutions for ensuring that your products can be imported into the United States without any unnecessary delays with FDA or other government agency!

Within the FDA including the Los Angeles Office Imports Branch where I worked an Investigator and eventually as the supervisor of the import Compliance Officers. I also worked at FDA’s headquarters at the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN) and at the Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) headquarters.

Mr. Chiang’s prior management experience with FDA import operations gives him detailed insight on FDA’s enforcement and implementation of laws, agency regulations, and administrative practices, including the Food Safety Modernization Act. He works with clients to analyze and develop compliance, and to resolve import holds, detentions, refusals, and import alerts.
