Ltd., a US/Thailand Limited Amity Company is dedicated to manufacturing and importing superior grade organic Dietary Health Supplements from Thailand that adhere to both the laws setforth by the Thai Ministry of Public Health/FDA guidelines as well as the US Department of Health & Human Services - Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994

Dietary Health Supplement guidelines.

Dietary Health Supplements in the United States were originally regulated under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetics Act. The United States Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (abbreviated as FFDCA, FDCA, or FD&C), is a set of laws passed by Congress in 1938 giving authority to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to oversee the safety of food, drugs, medical devices, and cosmetics.

The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 - Public Law 103-417 - 103rd Congress supercedes and/or amends the original legislation setforth in the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of 1938.

An Act

Objective; To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to establish standards with respect to dietary supplements, and for other purposes. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

§1. Short Title; Reference; Table Of Contents. (a) Short Title. - This Act may be cited as the “Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994”.

§2. Findings. US 103rd Congress Public Law 103-417 finds that;

(1) improving the health status of United States citizens ranks at the top of the national priorities of the Federal Government;

(2) the importance of nutrition and the benefits of dietary supplements to health promotion and disease prevention have been documented increasingly in scientific studies;

(3)

(A) there is a link between the ingestion of certain nutrients or dietary supplements and the prevention of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and osteoporosis; and

(B) clinical research has shown that several chronic diseases can be prevented simply with a healthful diet, such as a diet that is low in fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium, with a high proportion of plant-based foods;

(4) healthful diets may mitigate the need for expensive medical procedures, such as coronary bypass surgery or angioplasty;

(5) preventive health measures, including education, good nutrition, and appropriate use of safe nutritional supplements will limit the incidence of chronic diseases, and reduce long-term health care expenditures;

(6)

(A) promotion of good health and healthy lifestyles improves and extends lives while reducing health care expenditures; and

(B) reduction in health care expenditures is of paramount importance to the future of the country and the economic well-being of the country;

(7) there is a growing need for emphasis on the dissemination of information linking nutrition and long-term good health;

(8) consumers should be empowered to make choices about preventive health care programs based on data from scientific studies of health benefits related to particular dietary supplements;

(9) national surveys have revealed that almost 50 percent of the 260,000,000 Americans regularly consume dietary supplements of vitamins, minerals, or herbs as a means of improving their nutrition;

(10) studies indicate that consumers are placing increased reliance on the use of nontraditional health care providers to avoid the excessive costs of traditional medical services and to obtain more holistic consideration of their needs;

(11) the United States will spend over $1,000,000,000,000 on health care in 1994, which is about 12 percent of the Gross National Product of the United States, and this amount and percentage will continue to increase unless significant efforts are undertaken to reverse the increase;

(12)

(A) the nutritional supplement industry is an integral part of the economy of the United States;

(B) the industry consistently projects a positive trade balance; and (C) the estimated 600 dietary supplement manufacturers in the United States produce approximately 4,000 products, with total annual sales of such products alone reaching at least $4,000,000,000;

(13) although the Federal Government should take swift action against products that are unsafe or adulterated, the Federal Government should not take any actions to impose unreasonable regulatory barriers limiting or slowing the flow of safe products and accurate information to consumers;

(14) dietary supplements are safe within a broad range of intake, and safety problems with the supplements are relatively rare; and

(15)

(A) legislative action that protects the right of access of consumers to safe dietary supplements is necessary in order to promote wellness; and

(B) a rational Federal framework must be established to supersede the current ad hoc, patchwork regulatory policy on dietary supplements.

I. We fully support legal, safe & effective bacteria-free GMP manufactured Dietary Health Supplements & profoundly object to the on-going illegal activity being perpetrated by hi-tech internet portals who circumvent the laws of Thailand and America by electronically mass marketing undocumented, unlicensed, black-market and/or adulterated supplements currently being imported into the United States through the US Postal system hence avoiding the import-export laws and health & safety regulations of the Thailand Ministry of Public Health, FDA & The US Department of Health & Human Services, Office of Dietary Supplements.

We have filed formal complaints with both the Inspector General's Office at the Thailand Ministry of Public Health, (FDA) and the US Department of Health & Human Services Special Investigators.

II. We fully support an upcoming GOFUNDME Community-fundraiser project to seek legal action directed toward those hi-tech corporations and individuals involved in illegal trafficking of non-GMP compliant, black market and/or adulterated dietary health supplements sold on the internet. This is NOT being adhered to by US FDA, hence the general public is at significant health risk because multi-billion dollar hi-tech corporations have employed evasive if not illegal internet mechanisms which have evolved faster than lawmakers in terms of monitoring and enforcing current public safety regulations.

The Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994 states;
§9. Good Manufacturing Practices. Section 402 (21 U.S.C. 342), as amended by section 4, is amended by adding at the end the following: “(g)(1) If it is a dietary supplement and it has been prepared, packed, or held under conditions that do not meet current good manufacturing practice regulations, including regulations requiring, when necessary, expiration date labeling, issued by the Secretary under subparagraph (2). “(2) The Secretary may by regulation prescribe good manufacturing practices for dietary supplements. Such regulations shall be modeled after current good manufacturing practice regulations for food and may not impose standards for which there is no current and generally available analytical methodology. No standard of current good manufacturing practice may be imposed unless such standard is included in a regulation promulgated after notice and opportunity for comment in accordance with chapter 5 of title 5, United States Code.

Good Manufacturing Practices(GMP) Dietary supplement processors, manufacturers, and packers are responsible for ensuring that a dietary supplement or dietary supplement ingredient is safe by following GMP. [34]

GMP establish the minimum standards for activities related to manufacturing, packaging, labeling, or holding dietary supplements for the purposes of ensuring the product’s quality throughout the manufacturing process to minimize the risks of a potentially unsafe or otherwise illegal product from reaching the marketplace.

DSHEA gave FDA the authority to establish GMP specific to dietary supplements modeled after the existing GMP for food.[35]

Dietary supplement-specific GMP were requested by industry, citing concerns that GMP developed for conventional food products did not adequately address the unique characteristics of dietary supplements. These regulations were finalized in 2007,

[36] and largely addressed the concerns raised by the industry. Dietary supplement GMPs contain sections that detail additional quality control procedures and record keeping requirements for each step in the manufacturing process.

[37] Following GMP should ensure that final products do not include the wrong ingredients; too much or too little of a dietary ingredient;[38] contaminants such as natural toxins, bacteria, pesticides, glass, lead or other heavy metals; or improper packaging or labeling.

FDA noted in the final rule that “the focus of GMP is on process controls to ensure that the desired outcome is consistently achieved, and not on the inherent safety of the ingredients used.” [39]

GMP for dietary supplements apply to all domestic and foreign companies that manufacture, package, label, or hold a dietary supplement for import and sale in any state or territory of the United States, the District of Columbia, or Puerto Rico.[40] This includes those involved with testing, quality control, packaging and labeling, and distribution of dietary supplements, [but excludes retail establishments that are solely involved in the direct sale of dietary supplements to individual consumers] This "loophole" must be addressed to Congress immediately to stop the sale of these undocumented black market supplements being sold on internet stores such as Amazon, eBay, Etsy and others which cause 23,000 emergency room visits per year.
