Presented by Steve Cammarn, Ph.D.
Product development in the dietary supplement industry has never been more competitive. With new companies and products arriving in the marketplace at rapid speed, the pressure is on to develop something new and exciting for the consumer in order to stay ahead of the competition.
When developing new products, one area that cannot be overlooked is that of regulatory compliance with the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), and FDA’s Good Manufacturing Practice requirements for dietary supplements per 21 CFR 111, Current Good Manufacturing Practice (cGMP) in Manufacturing, Packaging, Labeling, or Holding Operations for Dietary Supplements,and appropriate labeling of the dietary supplement product in accordance to 21 CFR 101, Food Labeling.
