The dietary supplement industry faces a changing world that demands an intense focus on quality.
UNPA's Raw Materials & Supply Chain Summit, the second of a three-part series of educational conferences focused on dietary supplement product quality initiatives and a follow-up to UNPA’s Analytical Testing Summit, will include in-depth sessions on the following key topics:
- DNA testing update: applicability, reference materials and implementation
- The Food Safety Modernization Act and its impact on dietary ingredients and dietary supplements
- Information technologies to manage information flow, including track-and-trace technologies, from Repositrak; Vitature / Healthnotes; and Global Supplier Verification
- Standards, programs and initiatives, including an update on the status and rollout of industry quality standards initiatives, covering botanicals raw material good manufacturing practices, an industry product registry database, minimum certification standards and the establishment of minimum facilities requirements.
The summit will provide attendees with the information and resources needed to implement new systems and technologies and integrated quality practices, leading to product integrity and competitive fairness and a dramatic increase in competence and transparency of the dietary supplement supply chain by linking all critical components, from field and factory to consumer.
Sessions are designed to help senior executives, legal and regulatory staff, QA/QC and R&D experts, and purchasing and marketing teams at dietary supplement companies, analytical labs and raw material suppliers understand the issues and formulate strategies to respond to rapidly changing consumer perceptions and a new manufacturing and production environment.
