The Regulatory Summit, a one-day event, will feature sessions held in an interactive format to help attendees formulate clear direction and options for addressing current regulatory compliance matters confronting dietary supplements and functional foods. The conference will feature a variety of regulatory experts as session leaders, from companies, consulting firms, quality control laboratories and law firms. In addition, several FDA regulatory officials representing various units of the agency will participate as presenters and observers, providing an important interface between the supplement industry and the government authority that regulates it.
“We anticipate this conference will have broad appeal for regulatory professionals in the dietary supplement and functional food industry, including senior executives, regulatory/quality managers, and technical scientists. We’ll cover topics of interest in regulatory affairs, as well as quality control/quality assurance,” said Duffy MacKay, N.D., senior vice president, scientific and regulatory affairs, CRN. “We’d encourage companies to send more than one person as the set-up for the conference will encourage team-building opportunities resulting in strategies to prevent regulatory problems as well as practical remedies and forward-thinking solutions to address and correct them.”
The Regulatory Summit is just one of the educational events in which CRN is involved. In conjunction with the American Conference Institute (ACI), CRN will co-host the fourth annual Legal, Regulatory and Compliance Forum, June 27–29, in New York City. The forum will focus on current legal and compliance issues that greatly impact the industry. CRN’s annual Day of Science and The Conference have both been growing in popularity over the past several years, and both events have gained a strong reputation for substantive presentations and networking opportunities. Additionally, CRN hosts a series of webinars each year in coordination with Informa Exhibitions.
