Marc Ullman spoke with Natural Products INSIDER for the article, “Compliance responsibilities when using a contract manufacturer.”

Some brands contract out their products to individual manufacturers. During this collaboration, many questions can arise regarding compliance responsibility and reporting regulations.

There are a multitude of manufacturing and reporting requirements, such as cGMPs (current good manufacturing practices), FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) and adverse event reporting. These acts help make sure that products such as dietary aids and supplements are safe and healthy for consumers.

Ullman weighs in to discuss a common misconception in the industry, noting that the contract manufacturers are not responsible for everything.”

He further explains, the “FDA takes the position that the brand owner is equally responsible for understanding how the product is made and that the finished goods are exactly what they are supposed to be,” he said. “This shared responsibility derives from the fact that consumers reasonably rely on the brand owner (the company whose name is on the label) to make the final determination that the product is suitable for release.”
