This webinar will evaluate the chief areas of the Dietary Supplements FDA CGMP compliance requirements as required by in 21 CFR 111, the US Law – this and related regulations mandate a ‘total quality system’ -- from customer requirements thru development, production, to customer use/feedback. Labeling requirements will also be discussed, including those uniquely geared to nutraceuticals. The steps resulting in the present FDA regulatory requirements will be reviewed. This webinar can also be a significant part of meeting a company’s annual CGMP training requirement (if properly supplemented and documented) for a neutraceutical company.
Why Should You Attend
The US FDA issued a final rule (law) regarding current good manufacturing practice (CGMP) for dietary supplements in August 2007, 21 CFR 111, Dietary Supplements CGMPs. It established the minimum CGMPs necessary for activities related to manufacturing, packaging, labeling, or holding dietary supplements to ensure the quality of the dietary supplement. It is one of many actions related to dietary supplements that the FDA has taken to promote and protect the public health, when voluntary / trade association inspections failed to do so. Even with this recent law, some companies have continued to add undeclared / illegal ingredients to some dietary supplements, especially in weight loss and sexual enhancement products. What is required to be in compliance, in raw materials, in production, testing, and documentation?

The US FDA regulates dietary supplements under a different set of regulations than those covering "conventional" foods, and drug products (prescription and Over-the-Counter). This is 21 CFR 111, Dietary Supplements CGMPs.
Prior to 111’s implementation, the dietary supplements industry was under a voluntary compliance program which not every company utilized or adhered to. Now, since August 2007, it’s the law in the US.
