“…Legal and regulatory issues are front and center for our industry, affecting supplements used for decades like n-acetyl-L-cysteine (NAC) and newer formulations such as hemp derived cannabidiol (CBD) alike, with the potential to affect other ingredients. Our agenda will help participants prepare for what’s ahead.”

2022 Program Highlights
  • Drug Preclusion Case Study
  • Industry/Retailer Think Tank on Harmonized Product Testing
  • Focus Session on Mandatory Product Listings
  • Brainstorm on Solving the CBD Stalemate Working Group on Supply Chain Disruption Mitigation

With the dietary supplement industry currently witnessing unprecedented growth, it is imperative that we understand how the changing legal and regulatory landscape will impact industry policies and practices for the remainder of 2022 and the future.

At this year’s conference, we will explore the latest FDA priorities for dietary supplements under new Commissioner, Dr. Robert Califf and we are delighted that Dr. Cara Welch, the newly appointed permanent director of FDA’s ODSP will be our Keynote.

We will examine new strategies that companies can employ to avoid drug preclusion when developing and introducing new ingredients. We will also examine pending legislation supporting mandatory product listings and approaches to making harmonized product testing a reality. We will explore new concerns and interests related to botanicals, tactics for substantiating health and immunity product claims, and effective approaches for addressing supply chain disruption and ingredient shortages.

We will also be taking a closer look at the latest trends in state activity impacting the industry, including age restriction legislation for access to certain supplement products. We will examine offensive tactics and novel defenses that supplement manufactures can employ in defending class actions. Finally, we will look at the concept of “the New Enforcers” and explore how the industry, plaintiff’s bar, and consumer protection groups are taking on the yoke of the regulators.

Do not miss the chance to reunite with your industry peers and engage in meaningful discussion about the most pressing concerns facing supplement companies today as well as the impact the latest developments will have on your business.

We look forward to seeing you in New York this June!
