Your service has been a useful tool to track regulatory issues, flows and requirements. It helps to read between the lines so we can manage our business. It has consistently been timely and complete.

IFT benefits tremendously from our subscription to FIEN. The service provides us very timely information and news on an impressive breadth of subjects. Being able to tailor a subscription to specific topic interests is helpful. Additionally, the availability of the service at no cost to students and interns is remarkable.

FIEN messages provide timely regulatory and policy updates on issues of interest to myself and others with DuPont Nutrition and Health. I will be retiring soon and will be transferring my subscription to my replacement.

FIEN is a professional group providing pertinent information on a wide variety of subjects that were important to me, particularly when I was president of ISEO. My time was very important to me since I attempted to keep abreast of multiple issues, and FIEN helped make efficient use of that time. Thanks for the services provided during those years.

I want you to know how impressed I am with the information sent every day through your service. After running CFSRS for two years, I have tried and dropped many services, but I am definitely keeping your service. For a small company, it keeps me plugged in to what is happening in the regulatory and food processing world. I would be happy to recommend your service to anyone that asks. Thank You.

The electronic clipping service provided by FIEN is invaluable to me! I often get Federal and international news through FIEN faster than from my own agency. In fact, FIEN locates and delivers information that I wouldn't find any other way. The targeted topic areas let me keep informed on related interest areas with little effort on my part. FIEN services are just impossible to beat and I rely on their information every day!

This newsletter provides timely information on today's food safety issues.

FIEN keeps me up-to-date on a broad range of issues.
As an independent consultant, I would be hard-pressed
to keep my finger on the pulse of such a diverse range of topics.
And the multiple formatting and frequency options allow me to manage information more effectively.
Thank you for this service!

In several different positions in- and outside of government, I've subscribed to the FIEN newsletter continuously since Jack started it as a weekly fax, in 1995.
As FIEN's coverage has expanded and news arrives quicker with advancing electronic communications, I still find that my daily FIEN emails are the very best source of what's happening in the federal government and internationally, about topics important to me and my work.
I learn of EPA activities that I'd never hear about inside the Agency, and I especially appreciate the homeland security notices that FIEN captures and delivers.
Keep up the good work, Jack and Cindy!

Guy H. Johnson, Ph.D.

FIEN is a great way to keep abreast of developments in the nutrition/regulatory world.
I often feel sorry for Jack when I see his update come through at all hours of the day and night. Holidays included!

What I told you 2 1/2 years ago still holds, though I'm at a new organization with new responsibilities.
I appreciate the daily and weekly updates very much. I save the weekly version and can count on that resource to find what was said when about any subject important to my field.
Often, your at-random-times items are the first signal I get on regulatory actions or breaking news.
You are my extra set of eyes and ears and I appreciate your efforts. Keep up the good work!

Each organization that subscribes to FIEN, LLC Service may assign up to five members of its staff to receive FIEN, LLC Information at no additional charge. And each of the five individuals may choose to receive information in as many of the subject areas as may be of interest to each individual. In other words, a person interested in food labeling, food safety and nutrition may have their name on those and related lists; another person interested in occupational safety and health may be on that list; another person interested in clean air and clean water issues may be on those lists, and so forth.
