Online - Dietary Supplements HACCP

The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA) was signed by President Clinton in 1994 when it was estimated we had in the United States over 7,000 dietary supplements. The estimate today is over 80, 000.  The Act defined dietary supplements as a vitamin, a mineral, an amino acid, an herb or other botanical, a dietary substance for use by man to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake or a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, extract, or combination of any ingredient described above. The Act mandated the establishment of the Office of the Dietary Supplement in the National Institutes of Health (NIH)  and the Dietary Supplement Current Good Manufacturing Practices regulation (21 CFR Part 111) (DSCGMP) to be implemented by the Food and Drug Administration (The FDA).  Under the Nutritional Labelling and Education Act (NLEA) signed by President George H.W. Bush , the dietary supplements manufacturers are required to label their ingredients and under Food Allergen Labelling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA signed by President George W. Bush , dietary supplement  manufacturers are required  to label eight allergens and President Joseph Biden signed the Food Allergen Safety, Treatment Education and Research Act (FASTER) and added sesame to the list and now we have nine main allergens required to be labeled. The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) signed into law by President Obama on January 4, 2011. established seven foundational rules (Human Food Rule, Animal Food Rule, Produce Safety Rule, Foreign Supplier Verification Rule, Intentional Adulteration Rule, Transportation rule, and the Accredited Third-Party Certification Rule that has enormous implications for dietary ingredients and dietary supplements. This compressive Dietary Supplements HACCP course covers  all applicable laws and regulations related to dietary supplement manufacturing, packing, holding, labeling, distributing  and retailing and in depth biological, chemical, and physical hazard analysis to identify hazards, evaluate hazards and control hazards from sources to consumers using current scientific, technical and regulatory understanding of safe production and distribution of dietary supplements and dietary ingredients used to produce them.
