Herbal product makers want FDA to clear up ingredient identification procedures

The American Herbal Products Association has formally filed papers with the Food and Drug Administration asking for clearer — and even stricter — guidelines for how nutritional supplements should identify their ingredients. Among other things, the association wants the FDA to close loop holes that apply to supplements that were on the market before 1994.

The American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) has filed comments with the FDA aimed at helping it to tighten up the new dietary ingredient (NDI) notification process required by the 1994 Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (DSHEA).The association would like to see fewer dietary ingredients that are not new put forward for pre-market notification and suggest that its Herbs of Commerce publication may be a useful source document for companies.AHPA”s comments follow an open meeting held by the FDA in November 2004 to discuss the type, quantity, and quality of evidence that manufacturers should provide to the FDA in a new dietary ingredient notification.While new dietary supplements do not have to be approved by the FDA before they are brought to market, DSHEA does require that pre-market safety notification is made for any NDI not marketed in the US before 15 October 1994.Since 1994 a total of 260 NDI notification reports have been posted on the FDA”s website, however some of the notifications were incomplete or related to old ingredients that did not actually require review, notes the AHPA.In such cases the FDA has posted reports containing no comments and, when amended notifications are made by companies, these are assigned new references and posted as separate reports.While the notification process is not complicated, it is causing confusion amongst industry members and consumers.”Bringing new products to market is important in every industry, including this one,” said AHPA president Michael McGuffin.
