AHPA Regulatory Congress Panel:
Is it Time for DSHEA 1.4?

Wednesday, November 15 | 11:30am-12:20pm PT/2:30-3:20pm ET

U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) action on matters such as issuing final guidance on New Dietary Ingredient Notifications (NDINs) and addressing the future of FDA inspections remains to be seen, leading some to question whether it is time for an overhaul in dietary supplement regulations. In this panel, experts from AHPA and the industry will address what regulations are working, what areas urgently need improvement, and what changes to existing regulations would actually benefit consumers.
