May 14 summit in DC features updates and insights from FDA and industry
The five major trade associations of the dietary supplement industry announced today that registration is now open for the Dietary Supplements Regulatory Summit (DSRS), taking place Tuesday, May 14, 2019, at the historic Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. The DSRS is a collaboration between the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the Natural Products Association (NPA) and the United Natural Products Alliance (UNPA). The one-day regulatory summit will feature updates and insights from U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) officials—including Steven Tave, director of the agency’s Office of Dietary Supplement Programs—and industry experts, with a focus on compliance. A reception will follow the summit.
As the dietary supplement industry marks the 25th anniversary of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) in 2019, it has become a mainstream contributor to Americans’ health and wellness. More than 170 million Americans take dietary supplements every year now—75 percent of the adult population. FDA, too, has evolved, striving to meet the challenges of a global supply chain and stay apace with scientific innovation. The summit, now in its fourth year, brings together FDA and industry to continue to build on this growth, and provide a venue to share concerns collectively, learn from one another, and foster the consumer confidence-boosting synergy that thrives when responsible industry and regulators work together.
The DSRS is an industry-wide event designed specifically for manufacturers, marketers and regulators of dietary supplements in the regulatory and quality disciplines. Discounted registration is available to members of AHPA, CHPA, CRN, NPA and UNPA, but membership is not required to attend. Early-bird rates are in effect through Jan. 15, and a group discount is available. Please visit www.DSRS.wildapricot.org for details and registration.
