Evolution & Implications of Analytical Testing in the Post-New York Attorney General World

UNPA Dietary Supplement Analytical Summit 

« The New York attorney general’s investigations of botanical dietary supplements have triggered a national debate over quality, labeling and analytical testing procedures, as well as a lot of negative media. Scores of class-action lawsuits have been filed. Settlements by GNC and Nature’s Way with the New York AG add a new dimension of testing requirements for ingredient vendors.


This two-day analytical summit will explain and examine critical issues, with the objective of arming attendees with the knowledge and insights needed to understand, adapt and succeed in a very fast-changing and unsettling dietary supplement marketplace. Ample time will be provided for Q&A and general discussion.

Nearly 20 world-class experts will present, debate, and discuss the current state of affairs concerning:

  •  The New York AG investigations, GNC and Nature’s Way settlements and the status of plaintiff class-action litigation against retailers and companies
  •  Other state attorneys general activities involving dietary supplements, quality testing and consumer protection
  •  The strengths and limits of DNA barcoding. How can it be integrated with established dietary supplement testing procedures?
  •  How are national retailers and brand leaders being forced to become a new gatekeeper of quality and regulatory compliance?
  •  How far will DNA barcoding go? What’s next: probiotics, protein, algae, animal byproducts or other categories of products? »
