Dietary Supplement Regulatory Compliance in the United States Labeling Product Claims

11/20/2013 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Overview: This 90 minute live, interactive webinar will review the dietary supplement regulations and discuss how to verify that your products are compliant, while citing differences with food and drug regulations. We will also cover what qualifies a material as a dietary ingredient, considerations for manufacturers and distributors, requirements for compliant labeling and acceptable marketing claims. An update on FDA’s draft guidance for New Dietary Ingredients and an overview of the Dietary Supplement Labeling Act (both introduced in 2011) will also be discussed. At the conclusion of this 75 minute presentation, there will be a 15 minute Q&A session with the speaker.

The FDA, with assistance from the FTC, has become increasingly aware of the large amount of dietary supplements that have come onto the market since the passage of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act in 1994. A growing public demand for supplements, along with a relatively relaxed pre-market approval process, has resulted in a flurry of companies creating and marketing their own dietary supplements in the United States. With FDA beginning to take a stronger stance on Dietary Supplement enforcement, it is important for companies to verify that their products comply with the latest regulations and provisions.
