Omega-3 supplement restrictions in Indonesia have been reversed following pressure from the Global Organization for EPA and DHA Omega-3s (GOED) and the local trade body, Asosiasi Pengusaha Suplemen Keshatan Indonesia (APSKI). The original restrictions from Badan Pom, the National Agency of Drug and Food Control in Indonesia, required supplements with more than 300mg of EPA/DHA to have a health claim and to include warnings for consumers. Jade Mitchell-Ross is joined by Dr Harry Rice, Vice President of Regulatory and Scientific Affairs at GOED, to discuss the restrictions and recent reversal.
