WASHINGTON – In response to an announcement made by Scott Gottlieb, commissioner, Food & Drug Administration (FDA) at the Food and Drug Law Institute Enforcement, Litigation and Compliance Conference on December 12, the Council for Responsible Nutrition (CRN), the leading trade association for the dietary supplement and functional food industry, Steve Mister, president and chief executive office issued the following statement:

Steve Mister

“CRN welcomes the announcement from FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, on the agency’s efforts to re-examine its policies and approaches for dietary supplements. He’s correct that the dietary supplement industry has grown tremendously since the enactment of the Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act (DSHEA) in 1994 due to the emerging science that further supports the health benefits of these products and the continued growth in consumers’ interest to take more active roles in their health and wellness. We look forward to learning more about the recommendations of FDA’s Dietary Supplement Working Group and to working with the agency in evaluating these approaches.
