The Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the leading trade association for the dietary supplement and functional food industry, and Informa Exhibitions (formerly VIRGO) announced the continuation of their popular industry-wide webinar series through 2015, with four webinars (including one specifically for an international audience) addressing key issues facing the industry.
“Through our ongoing partnership with Informa, we’ve been pleased to offer educational webinars to the dietary supplement and functional food industry that have generated enormous interest from companies that are both members and nonmembers,” said Steve Mister, president and CEO of CRN. “These webinars not only give our participants exposure to our own association staff, but are popular because they also offer expert advice from outside attorneys and regulatory consultants, and include insights from government officials at FDA and FTC—all who share an interest in ensuring our industry complies with the myriad laws and rules we live under."
One of the most highly anticipated webinar topics this year will focus on FDA’s expected issuance of the revised New Dietary Ingredient (NDI) draft guidance. No issuance date has been announced by FDA, but the agency continues to say it is a high priority. Once the revised draft guidance is issued, CRN will carefully select those experts best suited to address the aspects of the guidance industry stakeholders will need clarity on, and announce a date. The topics for other webinars are still under consideration.
