For Vitamin, Natural Product Marketers & Alternative Practitioners:
This site also provides the means for web based dietary supplement businesses and organizations to contact Ralph Fucetola JD, an attorney with over thirty four years experience in the nutrient/natural health fields. I have recently made myself available as a consultant to review web sites for compliance with Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) advertising and labeling requirements, internationally, to permit web merchants and organizations the opportunity to benefit from my experience. I have many up to date formats for the documentation needed to properly market nutrients and natural products. I also consult with Complementary and Alternative Practitioners and have useful formats for them as well.
With the adopting of Nutrient Advertising Guidelines by the FTC in November 1998 and the formal Structure and Function Rule by the FDA in early 2000 (followed by the AER law in 2006 and the pending CAM Guidance) the Federal authorities have signaled an increase in oversight regarding nutrient internet claims. A number of States have also taken a more active role in regulating nutrient claims, especially regarding certain herbs and nutrients used in weight control. Regulatory action and private law suits have greatly increased during the past several years while various grace periods in the regulations have begun to run, requiring more careful compliance by all vendors.
