Event description

Description

One day regulatory and scientific workshop for Probiotics.

Probiotics are unique in every way, from the manufacturing processes, storage & stability needs as well as the analytical requirements to touch but on a few areas. Careful consideration must be taken when it comes to looking at how regulators view their inclusion into guidances and guidelines. Probiotics cannot be blanketed into all the other food and dietary supplement categories when creating definitions on how industry should conduct themselves.

Hence the workshop presents an excellent opportunity in opening dialogue and possible collaborations in looking at how these friendly organisms can be considered within these regulations.

This one day workshop will concentrate on exchange, discussion and debate on how collaborating with the government agencies in the USA can make the probiotic sector appropriately regulated considering its uniqueness all the while benefiting consumers of safe and efficacious probiotic products.


Please join the IPA in this collaborative workshop with U.S. Pharmacopeia.

Plenary Session chaired by Dr Jessica Terhaar (Younes), Director of Scientific Affairs for the International Probiotics Association.
