CRN strongly supports the creation of a mandatory product listing (MPL) housed at FDA to provide transparency to regulators, retailers and consumers alike.

Help CRN advance efforts to enact federal legislation that would establish an MPL for dietary supplements in the U.S. market. Contact your elected officials, thank Senators Durbin and Braun for their leadership—be heard! Find your member of Congress.
