ANSI is convening a meeting on coordination of dietary supplements standardization activities just four weeks from today. The meeting will be held at 20 F Street, NW Conference Center in Washington, DC, and will explore how standards and related conformance programs can foster safety, quality, and trust in the global supply chain for supplements. Speakers representing perspectives from industry, federal agencies, and consumer groups will discuss the latest industry developments and opportunities for collaboration.
The draft agenda for the meeting is available on ANSI's website. There is no registration fee but advance registration is required by May 3.
