Botanical Safety Consortium

The Botanical Safety Consortium (BSC) is a collaboration established by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), and the Health and Environmental Sciences Institute (HESI). The BSC was officially convened in November 2019 through a memorandum of understanding between FDA, NIEHS, and HESI. The Consortium’s mission is to provide a forum for scientists from government, academia, consumer health groups, industry, and non-profit organizations to work collaboratively to generate a sound scientific basis for integrating existing safety data and the latest toxicology tools to evaluate botanical safety in dietary supplements.

For additional information about the Botanical Safety Consortium, including how to join, contact HESI at botanicalsafety@hesiglobal.org.
