In addition to sports nutrition, Ed will discuss a new NSF Supply Chain Management Program specifically for ingredient manufacturers to help strengthen the quality of the dietary supplement supply chain while saving costs for both ingredient suppliers and finished product manufacturers.
Sports Nutrition Presentation
3 to 3:50 p.m. PDT, Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2012, in Congress Center, Marco Polo 701, Level 1
Ed Wyszumiala (NSF International) and Dr. Amy Eichner (USADA) will discuss the current state of doping in sports, and how the dietary supplement industry and anti-doping agencies can work collaboratively to protect the health of athletes and the integrity of America’s playing fields. Dr. Eichner will also discuss the USADA’s efforts to ensure drug-free competition in sports, which includes concerns with dietary supplements.
NSF Supply Chain Management Program – a GMP Audit Checklist Tool for Ingredient Manufacturing Facilities
NSF developed a new audit checklist tool specifically for ingredient manufacturing facilities that will help strengthen supply chain quality, reduce audit tourism from finished product customers, and cut down on the overall costs of auditing and testing long term. The new Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) audit checklist program is based on FDA GMP requirements and also includes requirements mandated under the new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) for food/dietary supplement ingredient manufacturers. This new ingredient GMP program has the potential to greatly reduce GMP nonconformances related to supplier qualification, a GMP requirement that many facilities continue to struggle with.
