Michael McGuffin, the president of the American Herbal Products Association (AHPA), tells Shane Starling why recently implemented adverse event reporting (AER) is delivering on its promise some three years down the line.

“There are good protections in it,” ​American Herbal Products Association (AHPA) president, Michael McGuffin, said. “We haven’t seen anybody – the FDA or the media – try and turn a report of an adverse event into some negative news article.”

Companies are becoming more familiar and comfortable with a self-reporting system that intends to bolster the safety of the dietary supplements category and act, among other things, as a ready-made quick-response system.
