FDA Issues Draft Guidance on New Dietary Ingredient Notification Master Files for Dietary Supplements

Constituent Update

April 3, 2024

Today, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing the availability of a draft guidance for industry titled “New Dietary Ingredient Notification Master Files for Dietary Supplements.” This draft guidance responds to the dietary supplement industry’s requests for specific guidance on recommendations about Master Files for new dietary ingredient notifications (NDINs).

NDIN Master Files are not required by statute or regulation, but, as explained in today’s draft guidance, can be used to facilitate the submission of NDI-related identity, manufacturing, and/or safety information to the FDA for use in evaluating a potential future NDIN. The intent of the guidance, once finalized, will be to help industry comply more easily with the NDIN requirement by providing recommendations on the content, submission, and use of Master Files.

The recommendations in this draft guidance expand upon and replace the recommendations related to Master Files in the FDA’s revised draft guidance, “Dietary Supplements: New Dietary Ingredient Notifications and Related Issues."
