Dietary Supplements: How to Deal with New Criminal, Civil Enforcement Realities

This is no longer your father’s dietary supplement landscape — criminal, civil and individual liability have all increased over the past several years for both dietary supplement companies and suppliers.

Now, with the U.S. Department of Justice's “Yates Memo” in full force, individual liability concerns are in play and no one is immune from criminal or civil lawsuits, especially suppliers, and especially with new GMP requirements and fraud scrutiny.

Scott Bass, head of Sidley Austin’s Global Life Sciences team, discusses the areas in which dietary supplement stakeholders face increasingly liability, how to prevent and mitigate that liability, and what to do if enforcement actions are initiated against your company.

You’ll hear expert analysis of the most recent and impactful enforcement actions, settlements and litigation that could directly affect your company or organization.

Specifically you will learn:

  • How to change practices that expose your company to new criminal enforcement
  • How to mitigate CEO and senior officer liability
  • How to alert executives to new enforcement trends
  • How to update GMP awareness
  • Dietary supplement and OTC companies
