Action Alert: Dietary Supplements Targeted With More Unnecessary Regulations

Take Action
Ask Your Senators to Oppose Senator Durbin’s Amendment
Unnecessary new regulations on this industry are not needed.

Senator Durbin (D-Ill.) has introduced an amendment to the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (S. 3187) that would impose needless regulation on the dietary supplement industry. The Natural Products Association (NPA) asks you to contact your senators and ask them to vote no on Durbin Amendment 2127. The amendment would add the following to the current registration requirements for dietary supplement manufacturers: (1) a description of each dietary supplement product manufactured by the facility, (2) a list of all ingredients in each dietary supplement product, and (3) a copy of the label and labeling for each product. These facilities would also be required to submit additional registration if the facility begins manufacturing a new product or a reformulated product, or ceases producing a product for which the facility previously submitted a registration.

Senator Durbin’s amendment adds layers of unnecessary bureaucracy, without addressing the real problem. NPA believes that the FDA has the necessary authority to regulate dietary supplements. However, the FDA has not received adequate funding to execute these powers properly. These expanded requirements would overwhelm the FDA and would not further FDA’s mission to protect the public health.

Please take a moment and email your senators and ask them to OPPOSE Durbin Amendment 2127.
