CRN Responds to GAO Report on Dietary Supplements
Date:3/2/2009

WASHINGTON, March 2 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In response to the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) Report on the Oversight and Regulation of Dietary Supplements, the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the leading trade association representing the dietary supplement industry, issued the following statement.

Statement from Steve Mister, president and CEO, CRN:

"As industry report cards go, we are pleased to see that this one demonstrates that the industry has come a long way since the original 2000 GAO report on dietary supplements was released. We are gratified that this latest report recognizes that dietary supplements are extensively regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We are also appreciative that the report refers to several of the regulatory improvements instituted -- and fought for by responsible industry -- including the issuance by FDA of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) specific to dietary supplements and passage of a law mandating that serious adverse events are reported to FDA. These kinds of improvements in industry regulation are the cornerstone of producing safe, high-quality dietary supplements used by more than 150 million Americans each year.

There are some recommendations in the report that CRN agrees could further strengthen FDA's ability to protect consumers and bolster their confidence in these products. Most importantly, we agree with the report that FDA needs additional resources. We strongly believe, however, that these resources -- including Agency staff time and funding -- should be focused on enforcing the current laws and regulations to help ensure that all companies demonstrate a commitment to protecting consumers and producing beneficial supplement products. CRN welcomes guidance from FDA on New Dietary Ingredients (NDI); in fact we've called on the Agency
