What is FDA's role in regulating dietary supplements versus the manufacturer's responsibility for marketing them?

In October 1994, the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) was signed into law by President Clinton. Before this time, dietary supplements were subject to the same regulatory requirements as were other foods. This new law, which amended the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, created a new regulatory framework for the safety and labeling of dietary supplements.

Under DSHEA, a firm is responsible for determining that the dietary supplements it manufactures or distributes are safe and that any representations or claims made about them are substantiated by adequate evidence to show that they are not false or misleading. This means that dietary supplements do not need approval from FDA before they are marketed. Except in the case of a new dietary ingredient, where pre-market review for safety data and other information is required by law, a firm does not have to provide FDA with the evidence it relies on to substantiate safety or effectiveness before or after it markets its products.

Also, manufacturers do not need to register themselves nor their dietary supplement products with FDA before producing or selling them. Currently, there are no FDA regulations that are specific to dietary supplements that establish a minimum standard of practice for manufacturing dietary supplements. However, FDA intends to issue regulations on good manufacturing practices that will focus on practices that ensure the identity, purity, quality, strength and composition of dietary supplements. At present, the manufacturer is responsible for establishing its own manufacturing practice guidelines to ensure that the dietary supplements it produces are safe and contain the ingredients listed on the label.

Imagine going to your local vitamin store to pick up your favorite multivitamin, vitamin C 500 mg, and some vitamin E 400iu, only to be told that they are no longer available and if you wish to purchase them you will have to visit your doctor and get a prescription.  This scenario is probable if the Codex Commission succeeds in their mission to restrict high potency supplements, to regulate supplements as drugs, and to reduce access to therapeutic nutrients.

In this article you will find out:

      Why is the health food supplement industry being attacked?

      Who is taking over the health food supplement companies?

      How does the Codex Commission affect your rights?

      What does the US voting delegate to the Commission say regarding supplements?

      What are the alternatives to the present direction of the Codex commission?
