The industry has seen an increase in FDA scrutiny, causing confusion about the FDA’s guidance on the strengths and composition of finished dietary supplement products and ingredients.

This is a long-standing issue for all companies, big and small. Get a diverse perspective from industry experts and learn how to navigate this conversation with FDA.
Manufacturers of dietary supplements play a key role in consumer safety. If an adverse event associated with a dietary supplement occurs, the manufacturer is responsible for documenting and thoroughly investigating the issue. As for serious adverse events reports (SAERs), manufacturers are obligated to document and submit any such reports that meet the law’s definition of “serious” to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in a timely matter. Failure to submit SAERs to FDA has consequences.
