Dietary supplements program, a critical priority for FDA


Aug 14, 2023

Robert M. Califf, M.D., Commissioner of Food and Drugs, has declared the FDA is planning to transform its organizational structure into a unified Human Foods Program (HFP). The changes are aimed to improve the protection of the nation's food supply, the access to safe and nutritious foods and to enhance the current FDA understanding of chemical safety and nutrition.

Under the new HFP structure, the Office of Dietary Supplement Programs (ODSP) will report to the Office of Food Chemical Safety, Dietary Supplements, and Innovation (OFCSDSI), the dietary supplements program remaining a critical priority for the agency. The reporting of ODSP to the OFCSDSI director is similar to its current reporting to an individual managing several Offices; however, the current individual reports to the CFSAN Center Director while the OFCSDSI director is proposed to report to a Deputy Commissioner.
