This 2-hr webinar will review the FDA and FTC regulations for promoting and advertising dietary supplements, walk you through real-life case studies, help you address compliance, and provide practical advice on how to respond to an enforcement action.
Why Should You Attend
FDA and FTC routinely initiate enforcement actions, including Untitled Letters, Warning Letters, Recalls, etc., against dietary supplement makers who misbrand their products by violating FDA advertising and promotion regulations, e.g., by claiming the product can treat, cure, prevent, mitigate or diagnose disease. Sometimes the Department of Justice gets involved and prosecutes firms on behalf of these agencies for violations. Such prosecutions often involve lawsuits against individuals running the companies, and can lead to Consent Decrees for the companies and their owners and responsible corporate officers. These threats can be avoided with proper review of promotional materials and by training and educating staff.
