Public Policy & Regulatory

The OTC medicine, dietary supplement, and consumer medical device industries are regulated by several government agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. CHPA serves as a resource to regulators and an advocate for product manufacturers and marketers.

CHPA provides access to research and experts to ensure that regulatory decisions are informed, transparent, and fair. We remain steadfast in advancing a regulatory and legislative agenda that empowers consumers to access the affordable, trusted products they need, when they need them.
