Associations Ask FDA to Extend NDI Comment Period

August 3, 2011

The associations have asked that the comment period, which was set for 90 days to end October 3, 2011, be extended by an additional 45 days.

Leading dietary supplement associations today sent a letter to FDA requesting that the agency extend the comment period for its recently released new dietary ingredient (NDI) draft guidance. The associations have asked that the comment period, which was set for 90 days to end October 3, 2011, be extended by an additional 45 days.

The letter states: “The Agency’s draft guidance for industry on new dietary ingredient (NDI) notifications is thorough and complex, thus requiring an in-depth review by stakeholders….members of our respective organizations believe additional time is needed to adequately prepare meaningful feedback for the Agency’s consideration.”

The associations include the American Herbal Products Association, the Consumer Healthcare Products Association, the Council for Responsible Nutrition, the Natural Products Association, and the United Natural Products Alliance.
