EVENTS UPDATE

TENTH ANNIVERSARY CONFERENCE OF COUNCIL OF DIETARY SUPPLEMENT PRODUCERS (CDSP)
The International conference “Food supplements industry and modern society: challenges, science, regulation” took place in Moscow on November 26 – the first ever specialised event on food supplements (BAFS) in Russian history!   The conference, which was a huge success, was held by Self-regulatory Organisation Council of Dietary Supplement Producers (CDSP), whi

ch celebrated its 10th anniversary this year. Amway, one of the founders of the association, is a permanent Council member.

Its agenda consisted of two main parts:
a) a scientific symposium
b) round table with industry representatives and governmental stakeholders.

This year the focus was on uniting efforts to maintain Amway’s high standing in the association whilst devoting special attention to increase the credibility of the organisation among the stakeholders. Elena Pletneva (Amway Regulatory Policies Advisor, R&D) and Andrey Serebrennikov (Amway Government Affairs Manager, Legal) led the organising committee of the Conference for more than 6 months.

There was a strong Amway presence of speakers:
 Audra Davies– Vice President, Product Development – Health, Beauty & Home, Nutrilite Health Institute (Audra’s presentation was highly engaging and well-researched and received a warm welcome from the audience);
 Wei Qian – European Regulatory Policy Manager: Regulatory officials were impressed by Wei’s excellent presentation on EU regulatory outlook and kindly asked to provide them with the presentation copy;
 Vasiliy Isakov –Head of the Department of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Clinic of the Institute of Nutrition.

All regulatory stakeholders’ representatives were in attendance, including Head of Russia’s Federal Office of Surveillance of Consumer Right Protection and Wellbeing (Rospotrebnadzor), Federal antimonopoly service, State Duma and Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs.

Science was supported by Department of Dietetics and Clinical Nutrition of Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia (RUDN). Over 20 scientists had an opportunity to discuss BAFS role in optimising day-to-day nutrition and to share the latest results in studies of the clinical efficiency of BAFS.

A round table on biologically active food supplements (BAFS) focused for the first time on specific BAFS problematics as a part of a bigger food industry. There was a vivid discussion over BAFS regulations in Europe, BAFS distant and itinerary trade legalisation, advertisement rules in the industry.
The full event coverage on YouTube attracted more than 6000 viewers in two days.

“We hope that the conference that has already proved to be a noticeable event, will contribute to BAFS industry development and fuel long-awaited change in regulatory landscape, including technical regulation and BAFS distant and itinerary trade legalisation,” says South African Amway Pharmacist, Allen Frank.
