Rick Kingston recently spoke at the Consumer Healthcare Products Association’s Regulatory and Scientific Conference regarding Best Practices in Safety Surveillance. During his presentation, Rick explained how dietary supplement firms and manufacturers with best practices in place for adverse event reporting are most likely to receive the best insurance rates.
