If you’ve started to read the new good manufacturing practice rules (cGMPs) for dietary supplements, you’ve already got questions. Chances are, AHPA has already answered them in this educational event that will help you learn exactly what you need to know about the new cGMPs, including the necessary processes and procedures to comply when they go into effect. Course materials include AHPA’s Annotated Final Rule on Dietary Supplement cGMP, an easy-to-read document that presents key points and comments made by FDA in the preamble to the final rule next to the relevant sections. Speakers include the head of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) dietary supplement program that wrote the new regulations as well as respected industry professionals who were deeply involved in reviewing and commenting on the cGMPs when they were proposed in 2003. 


  • Vasilios H. Frankos, MS, PhD, director of Division of Dietary Supplement Programs in the FDA's Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition — responsible for the full implementation of the DSHEA Act of 1994, Dr. Frankos directs and coordinates policy and administrative activities within the Division. Dr. Frankos advises on policy and management issues on dietary supplement programs, new dietary ingredient safety assessments, good manufacturing practice, adverse reaction monitoring, and related activities pertaining to dietary supplements.
  • Marc Ullman, Esq, partner with the law firm of Ullman, Shapiro & Ullman — specializing in food, drug, and cosmetic law, he also provides legal services to his clients in many other areas, including litigation support and trademark/copyright matters. Mr. Ullman’s practice includes representation relating to FDA compliance — including labels, labeling, claims, good manufacturing practices, and adversarial proceedings relating to the scope of the agency’s powers under DSHEA.
  • Michael McGuffin, president of the American Herbal Products Association — Active in the supplement industry since 1975, having owned both retail and manufacturing businesses, Mr. McGuffin has been AHPA’s president since 1999.
