It’s back! Our popular primer on dietary supplement regulation brings together top experts to break it down for those who do not have a regulatory background. 

Every job within a dietary supplement company is impacted by the regulatory framework in some way. Research and development, quality control, marketing employees—all the way up to business-focused CEOs—must attain a basic understanding of regulations to do their work efficiently and effectively. Rapid industry growth has driven an increase in mergers/acquisitions and start-ups, with new executives and managers—many from outside the industry—for whom there is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to dietary supplement regulations. CRN and Natural Products Insider present this basic-level webinar to provide a broad “need-to-know” understanding of dietary supplement regulation in an easy-to-follow format ideal for non-regulatory employees.

The Supplement Regulation 101 webinar will help participants better understand the four main pillars of supplement regulation:

  • How the regulatory framework is designed to ensure ingredients are safe and appropriate for use as supplements
  • How manufacturing regulations help ensure finished products contain what’s on the label in the right amounts 
  • How regulations on claims ensure that statements about a product are truthful and not misleading and are substantiated by science and appropriate for supplements
  • How post-market surveillance can track safety issues once products are in the marketplace

A Q&A period will follow speaker presentations.
