WASHINGTON — A new book from a trade group representing makers of dietary supplements details the laws and regulations that govern the industry.
The Council for Responsible Nutrition announced Thursday the release of Dietary Supplement Regulation in the United States, part of the series Springer Briefs in Food, Health and Nutrition. Springer, a scientific publisher, worked with CRN to compile the book, which the organization said could be used as an educational tool for dietary supplement companies, universities and law schools, as well as a reference guide for journalists and regulatory professionals.
The book reviews the various statutes and regulations that oversee the dietary supplement industry, including regulations on dietary ingredients, manufacturing standards, safety, labeling and claims and other issues. CRN VP scientific and regulatory affairs Duffy MacKay wrote the book, along with regulatory counsel Rend Al-Mondhiry, VP scientific and international affairs Jim Griffiths, associate director of scientific and regulatory affairs Haiuyen Nguyen and former senior director of scientific and regulatory affairs Taylor Wallace.
"Springer is known for providing scientific and professional communities with relevant, high-quality information on specialized topics," CRN president and CEO Steve Mister said. "CRN is known for our staff's depth of knowledge in the area of dietary supplement regulation. We are honored that Springer chose to collaborate with us in publishing this brief."
