How to find the right dietary supplements for your specific product (service) can be quite a challenge, if you are one of the players in the industry. The reason is this: manufacturers, labelers and packagers of dietary supplements, and even those who hold them, have to comply with the requirements set out in 21 CFR Part 111.

21 CFR Part 111, or what is called the “DS CGMP rule”, requires those who manufacture, package, label and stock dietary supplements to ensure the quality of the product by adhering strictly to the packaging and labeling requirements set out in this Part. These have to match what is specified in the master manufacturing record.

Till the FDA published the Dietary Supplements CGMPs as a “Final Rule”, which brought 21 CFR 111 into existence, the Quality Management Systems and controls on dietary supplements were loose and voluntary in nature. About the only requirement was the one set out by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), by which the Congress defined what is meant by a “dietary supplement”, and only required that every supplement be labeled a dietary supplement.

Complying with 21 CFR 111 is not optional

All that has changed with 21 CFR 111. To start with, the FDA now has a set of regulations for dietary supplements that is different from what is set out for conventional foods and drug products.  And then, players in the dietary supplements field that fail to comply with these requirements can have their products termed “adulterated” or “misbranded” by the FDA.

Despite the introduction of this Part, considerable confusion abounds in the industry as to just what type of manufacturing controls and record keeping, and labeling content the FDA requires, with the result that this Part continues to be a regulatory sore point for many new and established companies in the industry.

It is this confusion that this webinar seeks to clarify. John E. Lincoln will help participants of this session resolve these issues.

John will explain all the aspects of FDA Part 111, which will include Quality Management System/Quality Assurance/Quality Controls, personnel, facilities, equipment, software controls, production and Process Controls, holding and distribution, complaints and returns, and records.

At this 90-minute webinar, which is aimed at benefiting Senior Management in the dietary supplements industry, QA/RA, R&D, Consultants, those in Engineering and Marketing, those tasked with Product, Process, Validations and CGMP responsibilities, as well as other interested consumer groups, medical and other healthcare professionals, staff and office personnel, and start-ups, John will cover the following areas:

  • History of Dietary Supplement regulation in the U.S
  • The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA)
  • The key requirements of the Dietary Supplements CGMPs, 21 CFR 111
  • Required steps for CGMP compliance
  • Problem areas, common pitfalls
  • Implementation: Systems, templates and tools.
