Regulation of Dietary Supplements and NHPs [3.0 RAC]
Dietary supplements are trusted by millions in the United States to enhance their diets with a wide variety of nutrients, botanicals and other dietary ingredients. Similarly, many Canadians rely on natural health products (NHPs) like vitamins and minerals, herbal products and homeopathic medicines. As over-the-counter products, they must be safe, and all claims made for them must meet appropriate evidentiary requirements.

Both dietary supplements and NHPs have specific regulatory requirements that cover most aspects of formulation, labeling, claims substantiation, good manufacturing practices (GMP) and adverse event monitoring and reporting. Manufacturers and distributors of dietary supplement and NHPs must clearly understand their responsibilities to assure their products are fully compliant with all applicable regulations.

This course provides an overview of the regulatory requirements for dietary supplements in the US and for NHPs in Canada. Lesson One will consider dietary supplements in the US and Lesson Two will consider NHPs in Canada.
