SupplySide West Podcast 13: Exploring FTC's Role over Dietary Supplements

In this Healthy INSIDER Podcast, Kelley, Drye & Warren LLP senior associate Katie Bond homes in on FTC’s authority to regulate the advertising of dietary supplements and discusses a controversial “substantiation” standard that has divided the government and industry.

The Federal Trade Commission continues to closely monitor the advertising of dietary supplements.

In this SupplySide West podcast, Josh Long, legal and regulatory editor, and Kelley, Drye & Warren LLP senior associate Katie Bond, discuss:

  • FTC’s authority to regulate the advertising of dietary supplements;
  • The controversial “substantiation” standard that has divided the government and industry; and
  • Specific claims that are attracting FTC’s attention.

Bond will continue the conversation on FTC’s authority, and the broader topic of substantiating claims, at SupplySide West in Las Vegas. Join us for the Developing and Substantiating Product Claims workshop on Wednesday, Oct. 5, at SupplySide West 2016.
