About This Course

Manufacturing dietary supplements can be challenging for natural product producers. The U.S. FDA expects all companies that manufacture, package or hold dietary supplement products to follow 21 CFR 111, the dietary supplement cGMPs.

This course provides a basic understanding of the cGMP requirements for all companies producing dietary supplements, with a focus on the natural product industries. The responsibilities expected from various individuals and groups within the company will be detailed, and you will learn how to apply cGMP principles to specific situations.

The course is interactive, with hands-on exercises that include case studies from recent warning letters issued to natural product producers. Bring your own questions and prepare to interact with the instructor and your industry peers.
