Demonstrate the compliance of your supplements and OTC drugs
The global over-the-counter (OTC) drugs and dietary supplements market is driven by a general improvement in lifestyles, a rise in consumer awareness of preventative healthcare, the aging of baby boomers and proliferation of distribution channels.
Increased demand for private label products in this category has amplified the need for demonstrating transparency, which can help build customer loyalty for retailers and confirm good manufacturing practices for producers supplying retailers.
The regulatory landscape for OTC drugs and dietary supplements also drives the market, yet regulations and needs differ.
The dietary supplement industry remains an under-regulated environment where manufacturers need to demonstrate good manufacturing practices if they want to be successful with retailers.
The OTC and pharmaceutical markets are ruled by stringent regulations, so producers need to ensure they stay on top of regulatory requirements to remain compliant.
Given the current and future growing demand, manufacturers and retailers need a partner they can trust to help them stay on top of regulatory compliance and offer a global network of experts and laboratories to set them up for success.
