The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN) announced this year its plans to develop a dietary supplement product registry in an effort to increase transparency by making accessible—to consumers, regulators and retailers—information on dietary supplements and their ingredients. More recently, CRN announced its partnership with UL in the creation and administration of the database.
In this episode, Rachel Adams, managing editor, and Steve Mister, president and CEO of CRN, discuss:
- What’s next on the agenda for the registry, including when the registry is expected to launch;
- The role of CRN and UL in the creation and administration of the database (and whether there’s a potential role for regulators in the future);
- Who will be using the database and how (including the possibility of a mobile app for consumers).
