Dietary Supplements: What Can You Claim, and What Support Must You Have?

In this webinar, industry veteran Will Woodlee will provide an overview of U.S. legal requirements for making claims for dietary supplements and discuss recent enforcement activity related to such claims. He will explain the standards applied by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), state authorities, the National Advertising Division (NAD), and courts when evaluating dietary supplement claims.

Will will cover key concepts including the differences between lawful dietary supplement claims and drug claims, substantiation, establishment claims, health claims, competent and reliable scientific evidence, and use of expert endorsements. He will also discuss what types of claims present the most risk from a regulatory perspective and what manufacturers, distributors, and retailers should do to protect themselves from enforcement activity and costly litigation.
