  • Live Webinar

Wednesday, August 26th 

1pm Eastern/ 10am Pacific

2.5 hour webinar

Cost: $199 NPA member/ $395 non-NPA member

There isn’t an identity test available that is a one-for-all.  While the FDA holds the manufacturer responsible for the identity, purity, strength and composition of the product, not all manufacturers understand that a certificates of analysis (C of A) isn’t a replacement for identity testing.  Early 2015,  New York Attorney General, Eric T. Schneiderman made claims against the dietary supplement industry for having mislabeled products, but in actuality the tests performed were not the appropriate tests for what they were looking for to back up their claims.

Areas of discussion will include:

  • What tests are appropriate for my ingredients and finished products?
  • Do I test just ingredients or finished products too?
  • When is it better to have a third-party laboratory conduct the testing vs keeping in-house?
  • How to qualify a third-party laboratory
  • What does the FDA suggest for identity testing?
  • What to expect from FSMA and Preventative Controls for Human Foods (Dietary Ingredients)
  • Pitfalls of just using DNA barcoding testing
  • How the Industry views testing of dietary supplements
  • Legal ramifications for not performing the correct test

Attend this webinar to hear from experts in the industry to find out what tests you should be performing on your dietary supplements. You will have a rare opportunity to have your questions answered during a Q & A session at the end of the webinar with our experts.

Whether you are a manufacturer, supplier or a contract manufacturer you will want to hear what our experts have to say on choosing the right test for your dietary supplement.
