CRN Responds to 'Supplement Safety Now' Initiative
Date:12/2/2009

ws are enforced. That being said, there are enhancements to the current laws that are recommended in 'Supplement Safety Now' that CRN supports. For example, we agree with USADA that we need the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clarification on the New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) notification process, as well as FDA enforcement to punish companies who do not submit NDI notifications. These actions, along with rigorous inspections of manufacturing facilities under existing Good Manufacturing Practices, would help ensure that all new ingredients entering the market are safe, if used correctly.

It is important to reiterate that laws are only as good as the regulatory agency's determination and ability to enforce them. Some of the recommendations made under 'Supplement Safety Now'--which are well-intended--may not be very effective. For example, while CRN supports a registry of products with FDA, we do not believe that companies that are illegally contaminating products would bother to register. We believe that the best way to catch these offenders is to give the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and FDA more resources to enforce the laws already in place and to show these criminals that there are penalties to breaking the law.

Additionally, educational efforts, such as those by FDA, which reminds consumers not to use body building products represented as containing steroids or steroid-like substances, can go a long way toward helping consumers make smart choices for their health. More than 150 million Americans use dietary supplements each year and this includes athletes who use legitimate sports nutrition products.

CRN intends to continue its dialogue with USADA to find ways that we can help support this initiative and solve this problem that affects consumers and industry alike."
