Dietary Supplements and Nutraceuticals: Compliance with FDA's Current Manufacturing Requirements
This training on FDA cGMPs for Dietary Supplements and Nutraceuticals will discuss current FDA regulations, GMP requirements and techniques to be compliant using easier, shorter and convenient strategies. Case studies of FDA audit experiences will be presented for easy understanding.
Why Should You Attend:
In the last 4 years the number of FDA warning letters to manufactures of dietary supplement manufacturers have seen a significant increase. FDA now requires manufacturers of dietary supplements to follow GMP requirements closer to those for drugs than those for foods. These requirements include stricter documentation, standardized processes, use of trained personnel, adequately designed facilities, quality testing, packaging and shipping, and audit trails of processes. These requirements have created lots of anxiety in an industry filled with small businesses with few products, and international companies marketing in the US.
If you are a manufacturer, importer, supplier, stocker, marketer, shipper, or user of dietary supplements, this training is for you. The webinar will describe the US GMP requirements and discuss techniques to be compliant using easier, shorter and convenient strategies. The presenter will discuss ways to demonstrate compliance to the current regulations and regulatory trends for the near future. Common findings and possible solutions will be discussed. Case studies will be presented for audit experiences in many countries including US, China, Israel, Taiwan, and India.

Since the implementation of the GMP regulation of dietary supplements in 2007, FDA has conducted numerous audits of manufacturers and suppliers of these products and taken several enforcement actions against products of sub-standard quality, adulterated, false-advertised, or misleading products. To add to that, a vast majority of supplements are imported from manufacturers located in countries with poor GMP requirements for such products. Most of non-US manufacturing facilities have never been inspected by the FDA or any other regulatory authority. A recent GAO undercover investigation found that many supplements contain heavy metals including lead, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. An earlier report by the Institute of Medicine raised similar concerns. These reports have led to calls of increasing supervision by the FDA.
