Importing FDA Regulated Products: Common Pitfalls to Avoid

Importing dietary supplements and dietary ingredients presents particularly challenging opportunities fraught with multivariate risks requiring business strategies dependent upon interdisciplinary competence. Without 'owning the transaction' from end-to-end, regulatory non-compliance can result in civil and criminal penalties, denial of entry, seizure and destruction of goods, as well as unintended commercial consequences. During this session, you’ll learn how to navigate some of these challenges and how to interact with and respond to U.S. Food & Drug Administration, Department of Agriculture, and Customs and Border Protection, and strategies for managing the related business risks in importing dietary ingredients and finished dietary supplements.

Prop 65 Update

The Proposition 65 landscape is changing. Last year Governor Brown proposed a series of reforms to curtail frivolous and abusive lawsuits. This year California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment is trying to change the warning requirements. Recent and expected court decisions also have the potential to alter the way Prop 65 cases are brought and litigated. This panel will examine the current state of Proposition 65 and discuss the changes that are happening on the legislative, administrative and litigation fronts. The panel also will discuss what these developments mean to you and how they will impact the way you do business in California.

Welcome to the 21st Century: The Age of Advertising Scrutiny

Advertising is under attack. Historically, the FTC was the primary skeptic and challenger of advertisements, but now class action plaintiffs and even competitors are increasing the heat and challenging every conceivable claim or statement. This panel will provide an overview and key lessons learned from POM’s recent challenge of Coca Cola’s juice labeling to recent FTC activity as well as the latest class action battles going on in California and other parts of the country.
