Got botanical ID, cGMP questions?

Got botanical ID, cGMP questions?

Sign up for AHPA's full-day hands-on Botanical Congress on May 2.

Get your botanical ID questions answered here...and be in compliance with all of the federal regulations regarding ingredient identity!

  • How do I substantiate my usage of a particular method to FDA during an inspection?
  • There's an exemption on 100 percent identity testing in cGMPs for ingredients-when and how can that be used?
  • What is the best technology to use for XYZ herb identification and why?
  • What are the practical business considerations (costs, time, etc.) for using an in-house lab versus a third-party/contract laboratory given the size of my business?
  • What is the difference between a "scientifically valid" method and a "validated method" for identity?
  • I have an ingredient for which there is no AOAC or other method available-what do I do?
  • I have more than 200 herbs in my product-can I use one test method for them all? Which one's should I consider using?

Learn the answers to these as well as any and all other questions you have about botanical identification at the AHPA Botanical Congress. This highly interactive, full-day intensive provides you with access to an esteemed faculty to help you fulfill the requirements of good manufacturing practice (cGMP) regulations related to the analysis of botanicals.
