CHPA Releases Animation Calling for DSHEA Modernization

“A lot has changed in our world since then, and we need a modernized dietary supplements regulatory system," the association writes.

The Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA) has released a new animation showcasing the association’s priorities surrounding DSHEA modernization.

Since the Dietary Supplements Health & Education Act (DSHEA) was enacted in 1994, the supplements industry has grown from 4,000 products and $4 billion/year in sales to as many as 80,000 products and $50 billion in sales, CHPA points out. The association notes: “A lot has changed in our world since then, and we need a modernized dietary supplements regulatory system.”

In the animation, CHPA calls for moves including inspections for all manufacturers, mandatory product listing, and more. Find out what—and why—the association is looking for in the animation, here.
