The purpose of the meeting is to give interested stakeholders an opportunity to discuss issues related to FDA’s planned development of a list of pre-DSHEA ingredients. Topics covered during the meeting will include what evidence is necessary to show that an ingredient was marketed before October 15, 1994, and what process should be used to develop the list. FDA invites interested parties to provide information, share perspectives, and raise issues specifically related to the evidence needed to demonstrate that an ingredient is pre-DSHEA and on the process by which ingredients should be added to the list. Parties who are unable to participate in person will be able to join the meeting via live webcast.
