  • Washington, DC-MD-VA-WV (1888PressRelease) October 09, 2012 - The demand for dietary supplements has gone up exponentially in the last few years, and has become even more pronounced following the passage in 1994 of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act. Their nutritive value combines with a relatively easier premarket approval process from the FDA to create a high demand for them.

    As a result, more and more companies are making a beeline to get a piece of the pie. As more and more companies have entered the fray with their own preparations; the FDA has tightened the noose on dietary supplement enforcement, making it mandatory for companies to have their products comply with regulations.

    This webinar will familiarize participants with knowledge and techniques relating to dietary supplements. It will impart to them ways by which they can verify if a particular product is compliant or not. It will also talk about what qualifies a material as a dietary ingredient, considerations for manufacturers and distributors, requirements for compliant labeling and acceptable marketing claims.

    Apart from making an overview of the differences between existing food and drug regulations; this webinar will offer an update on FDA's draft guidance for New Dietary Ingredients and an overview of the Dietary Supplement Labeling Act (both introduced in 2011).
