Voluntary certification of food supplements

The registration of food supplements has limitations on the content of labels and fact sheet for consumers that are tightly controlled by regulatory authorities. In order to expand the data on the packaging and insert sheet, there is a voluntary certification procedure which provides imposition of additional warnings on the packaging. It is necessary to provide confirmation of product quality and assessment of efficacy of dietary supplements in optimizing different types of metabolism and normalization and / or improvement in the functional status of organs and systems of human body.

Voluntary certification does not negate the mandatory labels obtained by the state registration of food supplements.
