AbstractA strategic regulatory plan, with timelines and budget estimates, is vital to product development in the area of nutraceuticals. This report provides information on the regulatory environment in Canada, the U.S., and the European Community. It highlights key agencies and documents, as well as areas of evolving policy, to assist firms with regulatory planning. Although the key focus of this document is nutraceuticals and functional foods, other areas are covered since they are related and regulatory changes or developments could impact nutraceuticals. These areas include drugs for human and veterinary use, over-the-counter drugs, biologics and biosimilars, and cosmetics.
