Podcast: Dietary Supplements Forum to Host FDA, FTC, Amazon, and Justice Department Representatives

11th Legal, Regulatory & Compliance Forum will take place June 27-29 in NYC.

By Sean Moloughney, Editor06.09.23
There are all sorts of legal and regulatory issues affecting the dietary supplements market today. FDA restructuring, drug preclusion, facility inspections, FTC’s new Health Products Compliance Guidance, and updated Green Guides for environmental claims are just a few.

Top legal and regulatory experts will be tackling these issues and more at the 11th Legal, Regulatory & Compliance Forum on Dietary Supplements in NYC on June 28 and 29 with preconference workshops on June 27.

The Forum is a collaboration between the American Conference Institute and the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN).

To discuss the agenda and how a changing legal and regulatory landscape is impacting industry practices, I talked with conference co-chairs Megan Olsen, senior vice president & general counsel, CRN, and Taneesha Routier, director of regulatory affairs, XYMOGEN.
