“Own Label” and “Private Label” Distributor Responsibilities

A complimentary EAS Consulting Group webinar

Presented by Bruce Elsner.

If you are an “Own Label Distributor” (OLD) or “Private Label Distributor” (PLD) it is imperative that you understand FDA compliance expectations. With more and more of the OTC drug and dietary supplement industry turning to contacting services manufacturing, packaging, laboratory testing, and distribution, OLDs and PLDs are filling a gap, but at what cost?

OTC and supplement products must meet quality specifications. That means those in responsible positions must have a complete picture of how contracted activities are performed so that they may reliably confirm GMP requirements, ensure products are not adulterated and safe to approve and release for distribution – regardless of who actually performs the GMP operations.

FDA’s enforcement findings indicate this industry’s understanding of contracting requirements, responsibilities and documentation of performance is lacking as demonstrated by numerous warning letters and 483s in recent years.  

Learn more about OLD and PLD responsibilities, how to qualify contract service providers, establish a quality agreement and monitor a contract manufacturer and packager. Join EAS Independent Consultant, Bruce Elsner for this informative webinar and ensure you and your contract operations are meeting FDA quality expectations.
