FDAs Oct. 3 meeting agenda includes Pieter Cohen, Harvard Medical School professor; Consumers Union Programs Director Chuck Bell; Laura MacCleery, Center for Science in the Public Interest regulatory affairs director; and Stephanie Scarmo, Pew Charitable Trusts Health Care Products Project officer.
CFSAN and other FDA centers ask for "broad public comment" the agency will use "to guide our initial review of our regulations" required in President Trump's January executive order for federal agencies to "evaluate existing regulations and identify those that may merit repeal, replacement, or modification."
CFSAN schedules a public meeting on developing a list of dietary ingredients available in the food supply before Congress in 1994 passed DSHEA. CRN expects the meeting to lead an “official safe harbor list” of eligible ingredients, but not directly to a final NDI notifications guidance.
