Supplier qualification is an element in the U.S. current Good Manufacturing Practice regulation for dietary supplements (21 CFR Part 111). Proper supplier qualification across the dietary supplement industry is critical for maintaining integrity of the supply chain and reducing or preventing economically motivated adulteration. To assist with supplier qualification activities, the SIDI Work Group developed a
series of voluntary guidelines to serve as resources for the dietary supplement industry.

Dietary Supplement Component Supplier Qualification

The SIDI Work Group’s third voluntary guideline titled “Dietary Supplement Component Supplier Qualification” is now available as an open access tool for the dietary supplement industry. This voluntary guideline aims to assist manufacturers of dietary supplements (or other users of dietary supplement components) with compliance with the dietary supplement cGMP requirements (21 CFR Part 111.75). Specifically, it provides an outline to guide companies with the development of risk-based supplier qualification programs that may be used to help assess the reliability of component suppliers’ Certificates of Analysis and may assist the user in establishing an appropriate testing routine for incoming components. This Supplier Qualification Guideline follows the SIDI Work Group’s previous voluntary guidelines for the dietary supplement industry: the Certificate of Analysis Guideline and the SIDITM Protocol.
