Dietary Supplement Labeling Compliance
About This Course
It is up to dietary supplement manufacturers to ensure their supplement labels are compliant before they go to market, and the regulations can be confusing and difficult to interpret. Label noncompliance can cause your product to be considered misbranded and subject to Food & Drug Administration (FDA) or Federal Trade Commission (FTC) regulatory action.
The course is interactive, with hands-on exercises. Bring your questions and prepare to interact with the instructor and your peers in the industry.
