FDA Guidance Manual on Supplement Facility Inspections, Sampling, and Imports: How Compliant Are You?
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), its Compliance Programs exist to provide instructions to FDA personnel for conducting activities to evaluate industry compliance with the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and other laws administered by FDA. On September 30, 2020, FDA released its Compliance Program Guidance Manual (CPGM) titled “Dietary Supplements – Foreign and Domestic Inspections, Sampling, and Imports.” Per FDA, the goal of this CPGM is to ensure companies consistently manufacture dietary supplements of acceptable quality and minimize consumers’ exposure to adulterated and/or misbranded dietary supplements. Attend the webinar on March 18 to hear perspectives on the CPGM from an industry veteran and an FDA investigator. Aaron Secrist will speak from the vantage point of industry, and Justin Boyd will provide insight from FDA’s point of view.
