The discussions around modernizing the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) have included a proposal from FDA about developing a mandatory product listing. The agency has said such a listing could be implemented with minimal burden to industry, while the increased visibility into the market would significantly improve oversight and benefit consumers. If such a mandate is included in a so-called DSHEA 2.0 update, what would it mean for responsible supplement companies already following laws and regulations, as well as “bad actors” already disregarding similar requirements imposed on the supplement industry?
Host Josh Long taps three industry insiders to highlight their criticisms of a mandatory product listing,
- Mitch Coven, founder and CEO, Vitality Works
- Aaron Secrist, executive VP of quality, R&D and operations, NOW Health Group
- Steven Shapiro, of counsel, Rivkin Radler LLP
