Dietary supplements manufacturers are held to GMP manufacturing standards by the FDA. Their Final Rule on Current Good Manufacturing Practice in Manufacturing, Packaging, Labeling, or Holding Operations for Dietary Supplement was issued in 2007 and was in complete effect by 2010. This rule requires that manufacturers and distributors of dietary supplements demonstrate that their product has been manufactured, packaged, labeled, and held under conditions to prevent adulteration.
When the regulations were issued, the FDA was sensitive to the impact that compliance would have on small to medium size dietary supplement manufacturers. They calculated that the cost of compliance would be about $184,000 per year for companies with 20 or more employees and about $49,000 per year for companies with less than 20.
