Publicity for sports supplement programs

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

The dietary supplement industry "is doing a horrible job" of getting information out about its self-regulatory efforts, notes Jon Benninger at the Food and Drug Law Institute's dietary supplement emerging issues and trends conference Jan. 29 in Washington. Benninger, director of business development for Virgo Publishing, recounts how the CEO of U.S. Track and Field had discouraged use of all supplements by the group's athletes and was unaware of programs that screen supplement products tailored to professional athletes. Such programs include the Athletic Banned Substances Certification Program and a separate certification initiative specifically for National Football League players, both run by NSF International (1"The Tan Sheet" Jan. 21, 2008, p. 7). While such programs are admirable, Benninger says it remains up to industry to publicize the efforts

MDSAP is already used by device makers in the US and Canada so they can undergo one audit by an accredited third party to satisfy quality regulations. That leaves Mexico as the odd country out when it comes to using the popular program – and that means it has some catching up to do after the USMCA is ratified by all three nations. Former longtime FDA official Kim Trautman weighs in on how Mexico can incorporate MDSAP into its regulatory framework.
