“Good manufacturing practices for dietary supplements marked an important turning point for this industry. This milestone anniversary reminds all companies manufacturing dietary supplements that they have a responsibility to consumers and a legal obligation to follow these regulations,” said Duffy MacKay, ND, senior vice president, scientific and regulatory affairs, CRN. “We commend those companies who are not only following GMPs, but who then go above and beyond to adopt additional self-regulatory standards and best practices. More than 170 million Americans take dietary supplements each year with overall confidence, and this can be attributed in part to the mainstream industry’s adherence to the law and dedication to manufacturing products of the highest quality.”
In recognition of the anniversary, CRN will be hosting a Twitter chat from 3-4 pm EDT on June 22 to discuss the importance of GMPs and to call for increased compliance within the industry. To join the Twitter chat, follow CRN on Twitter (@CRN_Supplements) and use the hashtag #GMPsTurn10.
