Dietary supplement companies face numerous legal, regulatory and scientific questions as they look to comply with cGMP. Under the rule, it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to identify contaminants likely or certain to be present in or on components received and to establish limits to prevent adulteration of these components. How do you know what contaminants to set specifications for? What are your testing needs? How does California’s Proposition 65 come into play? What are the legal limits for pesticides? What is your liability as a supplier when you enter into a contractual agreement? To answer these questions and more, AHPA brings together an expert panel: Michael McGuffin, AHPA’s president and editor of “AHPA’s Annotated Final Rule on Dietary Supplement cGMP,” Aaron Secrist, Associate Director of Quality at Nature’s Way, Anthony Young, Esq., AHPA’s General Counsel and partner at Kleinfeld Kaplan & Becker,  and Trent Norris, AHPA’s Counsel for Proposition 65 and partner at Arnold & Palmer LLP.

  • Audio file of the AHPA event
  • An unedited transcript of the AHPA event

The book is available in hardback print and online formats. Both versions contain the same information, but the online version, which is optimized for smartphones and tablets, has several additional attributes. Some of these relate to its operation, as it allows subscribers to search for keywords and botanical names and easily access the information they use most by saving personalized lists of entries. Perhaps more importantly, the online version will be updated regularly with new research, and subscribers will be notified of updates to provide immediate access to the most current information. The standard retail cost for either version is $119.95 (one-time cost in print; a renewable annual subscription online). We are discounting the cost for our members and would be happy to offer a discount to other organizations. A free preview of several entries are available online:
