Recent legislative developments in New York & California regarding dietary supplements.
Dietary supplement legislation is also being prepared in the state of California. According to the bill summary, the legislation "requires manufactuers and distributors of dietary supplements to send to the Department of Health Services (DHS), on a quarterly basis, copies of all adverse event reports relating to their products." Specifically this billauthorizes DHS to charge a fee to cover the cost of reviewing those reports, which in trun will create the Dietary Supplement Consumer Complaint Fund (DSCCF), into which fees will be deposited, and designated DSCCF as the main source of funding to implement this program. The bill, however, exempts dietary supplements that contain only vitamins.
