The dietary supplement industry, along with academic researchers, government agencies, and other interested parties, including consumers, are being asked for comments on ways to improve the Dietary Supplement Label Database (DSLD).

The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) is seeking input on features and functionality improvements to make the DSLD a more useful tool.

Commenting on the announcement, Michael McGuffin, President of the American Herbal Products Association, said: “There has been much discussion in the trade recently about the potential value of creating a repository of supplement labels. This call for comments by ODS presents an opportunity to make improvements to this existing database to best assist consumers to understand the supplement marketplace.”

Comments must be submitted to BQF@avu.tbi​ by November 27 to be considered by a federal stakeholder panel for the DSLD.
