  • Webinar

  • 90 Minutes
  • February 2018
  • Compliance Online
  • ID: 4899819
Why Should You Attend:

FDA CFR Part 111 requires identify testing of dietary components that are to be used to manufacture dietary supplements. Identify testing is only part of the FDA requirement. Specifications must also be properly set up, documented and used correctly. When purchasing dietary components for use in dietary supplements the FDA has requirements for vendor qualifications that tie into the specification requirements.

This webinar will define identity testing. It will also show how to set up proper specifications and how-to qualify the vendors that the material is purchased from.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

Define identity testing versus specification requirements
Define which dietary components need to undergo identity testing and how that can be done.
Present identity testing examples
Discuss in house testing versus use of external labs
Discuss how to set up and use component specifications
Discuss testing requirements for component specifications
Discuss how to qualify dietary component vendors and what it means for a vendor to be qualified
