Regulators & The Regulated

Tuesday, September 26 | 1:30-4:30pm

This regulatory-focused workshop will explore activities by state and federal regulators to police the advertising and sale of dietary supplements, conventional foods and beverages. Experts also will examine the status of new and established self-regulatory efforts that complement the activities of state and federal government agencies.

  • The Trump administration’s new FTC, and how the agency is applying the substantiation standard to the advertising of conventional foods, beverages and dietary supplements;
  • An analysis of lawsuits and investigations brought against the industry by state attorneys general; and
  • The benefits of self-regulatory initiatives, including a long-standing initiative to monitor the truthfulness of advertisements, and an emerging product registry.
