NSF Celebrates DSHEA Anniversary with Open Access to Dietary Supplement cGMP eLearning Course

Ann Arbor, MI—To launch its new self-paced eLearning courses and celebrate the 27th anniversary of the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 (DSHEA), NSF International announced that it is offering no-cost access to an introductory eLearning module. To participate, visit NSF’s online training portal and use the promo code “DSHEA27” to register for “GMPs for Dietary Supplements – 21 CFR 111 GMP Overview and Subparts A, P, H and I” during the week of October 25 to 31. Upon successful completion of the course, participants will receive NSF’s Dietary Supplements certificate.

Covered in the digital training, which usually costs $499:

  • a brief historical review of regulations in the dietary supplement industry and their evolution as key incidents exposed health and safety risks to the consumer.
  • the subparts of 21 CFR 111 that create the foundation of a Quality Management System (QMS) and the good manufacturing practices that control product quality.

“DSHEA was landmark legislation in 1994 and it’s important for anyone in the dietary supplements industry to understand it,” said Casey Coy, Senior Manager, Training and Consulting at NSF International, in a press release. “To complement our virtual, instructor-led and in-person training options, we’ve launched an entire suite of self-paced, eLearning courses on DSHEA and the regulation it created, 21 CFR 111 GMP, and we hope this open-access promotion will encourage professional development in our industry.”
