Abstract
U S-FDA regulates fi nished dietary supplement products and dietary ingredients under the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA). Th e Directive 2002/46/EC of the European Parliament and Council of 10 th June 2002 established harmonized rules for the labeling of food supplements and introduced specifi c rules on vitamins and minerals in food supplements. Th e aim was to harmonize the legislation and to ensure that these products are safe and appropriately labeled so that consumers can make informed choices. In India, the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006 and Rules, 2011 regulate manufacture, storage, distribution, sale and import of food articles to ensure their safe and wholesome availability for human consumption. Th ere are no separate guidelines for nutritional supplements in India. Th e labeling requirements for nutritional supplements are also same as for food products. Th ere is no control over imported food products. In US, regulatory management of botanical drug products is the same as non-botanical drug products (under the Federal Food, Drugs & Cosmetics Act, 1938). For new botanical drug, FDA regulations require NDA for marketing submitted under Section 505(b). Th ere is no separate regulation for herbal products in U.S. In EU, there are three regulatory routes for herbal remedies by which medicines can reach the consumer namely as Unlicensed herbal remedies, Products registered under the Traditional Herbal Medicines Registration Scheme (THMRS) and Licensed herbal medicines. In India, Drugs & Cosmetics Act, 1940 and corresponding Rules, 1945 regulate herbal and Ayurvedic products. In this presentation, based on the compilation and comparative studies of regulations governing Nutritional Supplements and Herbal Products in USA and UK/ EU and in India, a gap analysis would be presented and fi nally what should be the befi tting appropriate regulations in Indian perspective would be arrived at.
