Summary of GSRS18 — Beijing, China

The 2018 Global Summit on Regulatory Science 2018 met September 26-27, 2018, in Beijing China at the National Institute for Food and Drug Control for their 8th consecutive meeting. The topics that were discussed and presented covered risk/benefit of dietary supplements and herbal medicine in the era of data science. The presenters represented 10 countries including four countries from Asia (China, Korea, Japan and India), two EU countries (Belgium and Italy), USA and Canada from North America, and Australia. The conference started with a discussion on the global regulatory structure for dietary supplements and herbal medicine. Given over 80% of the world’s population uses dietary supplements and herbal medicine, the follow-up discussion was focused on their safe use. The conference ended with discussing the challenges and opportunities of using new tools and methodologies in this area. The summit drew over 150 plus in attendees from 13 countries from around the world. The 9th Global Summit will take place September 2019 in Ispra, Italy at the Joint Research Center. The topics will focus on nanotechnologies and nano plastics.
