Voices on all sides have called for revisiting DSHEA, the 1994 law that created today’s vibrant dietary supplement market. As legislators consider amending DSHEA, industry stakeholders–and industry detractors–are proposing ways the law should change. What will those changes mean for your business?

Join the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) for a discussion about what’s on the table for DSHEA 2.0 and how those amendments will affect the dietary supplement industry.

Moderated by CRN’s President and CEO, Steve Mister, this webinar will critically examine proposals to amend DSHEA, along with the pitfalls and potential booby traps the industry could experience as a consequence, including:

  • The so-called “GRAS loophole” and how companies are using it for good—and for bad
  • Gaps in the law allowing illicit products to exist between “drug” and “supplement”—and how to fix them
  • Third-party inspections and whether they would correct for FDA’s scarce resources
  • Expanded adverse event reporting
  • Mandatory product listing
  • International influence—what if the U.S. system looked a lot more like Canada?
  • …and more!

This is a must-attend event for industry executives, government and public affairs professionals, outside and in-house legal counsel, and regulatory and compliance officers.
