Claims Substantiation Seminar

Claims Substantiation

Presented by Paula Brock, PhD., EAS Senior Regulatory Consultant

March 14, 2024

1:00 – 3:00PM (Eastern)

It is required in the United States that manufacturers and other advertisers of dietary supplements such as distributors, retailers, and endorsers, have adequate substantiation that the claims made about their products are “truthful and not misleading”. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) released an update of their substantiation guideline in December 2022. Combined with the FTC guideline, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines and regulation provide the framework for claims and claims substantiation for U.S. dietary supplements.

This two-hour training will be a scientific dive into the regulatory requirement of claims substantiation. Several topics including the following will be discussed along with real case examples: which types of evidence are available and where to find them; what are high quality and low quality evidence; when is the evidence irrelevant to the claim being made; and how to write claims that can be substantiated.
