ODS Invites Public Comment on
Dietary Supplement Label Database

The Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health, in partnership with the National Library of Medicine, welcomes public comment on the Dietary Supplement Label Database (DSLD). Launched in June 2013, the DSLD now provides all the information from the labels of 50,000 dietary supplement products marketed in the United States. ODS is particularly interested in comments about features to add and functionality improvements that would make the DSLD a more useful tool to users.

A federal stakeholder panel for the DSLD will consider all comments received. ODS requests input from academic researchers, government agencies, the dietary supplement industry, and other interested parties, including consumers. The DSLD can be accessed online at http://dsld.nlm.nih.gov.

Date: To ensure full consideration, all comments must be received by 11:59 p.m. Eastern time, November 27, 2015.

Address: Interested individuals and organizations should submit their responses to ODS@nih.gov.
