The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) and the Nutritional Capital Network (NCN) announced events offering legal and business opportunities, while Rousselot has been deemed a supporter of an annual osteoporosis day.
CRN's Steve Mister, president and chief financial officer, will co-chair the third annual Legal Regulatory and Compliance Forum on Dietary Supplements with Scott Bass, partner Sidley & Austin LLP, in New York City, June 24 and 25, 2015. Mister’s legal expertise complements his in-depth knowledge of dietary supplement regulation and his experience as an advocate for the industry before Congress, FDA and state legislatures. Bass heads Sidley Austin’s global Life Sciences team, coordinating pharmaceutical, medical device, food and dietary supplement matters in the United States, Europe and Asia. He has also counseled clients on compliance to the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA) for the past 20 years.
