GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR DIETARY SUPPLEMENT PRODUCTS REGISTRATION IN THAILAND
Before starting the registration process of a food supplement, the Thai FDA must first approve all ingredients of the product. It is common that an ingredient registered and normally used in other countries may not be into the authorized ingrediants in Thai FDA. For new ingredients, the FDA will request additional supporting documents and an external procedure that makes the process longer and more expensive (Novel Ingredient). Before making any decision and before negotiating the cost with the consultant, the Company need to make strategic decisions about whether to retain the new food ingredient in a formula. The new ingredient can be helpful in giving a commercial advantage for the product from competitors, but on the other hand the project will have extra costs.
The Applicant must provide (1) the ingredient list for its products; (2) the source of the ingredients; (3) the manufacturing process; (4) the objectives of use; and (5) the targeted consumer group.
Thai FDA requires the following data and information for food supplement registration:
- Details of the exact composition by percentage of each ingredient
- TDS of each ingredient
- Laboratory analysis of finished product if liquid
- NO SAMPLES are needed
The product label must show the following information for consumers:
- Name and brand of the product (both generic and trade)
- Registration number
- Name and address of the manufacturer
- Name and address of the importer
- Manufacturing and expiry dates
- Net weight and volume
- Any additives used
- Health and nutritional claims (not in all cases)
Thai FDA requirements for Dietary Supplements
A food supplement can contain common herbal ingredients and other bioactive ingredients at a daily intake level recognized by the Thai FDA. For common vitamin and mineral supplements, the levels of the nutrients must be kept between 15–100% of the Thai Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) in order to be classified as a food supplements.
Food supplements can bear exclusively claims that are in line with the Codex Alimentarius nutrition labelling guidelines. For claims pertaining to functions of nutrients there’s a list of claim that Thai FDA authorizes. They follow such list extremely strictly and a single word not compliant may bring to a rejection.
Thai FDA is in the process of reviewing its regulatory framework for evaluating the substantiation of health claims in harmony with the new ASEAN directives. Food supplements can’t bear any medicinal claim, unless the product is a traditional medicine or drug. This is another bottleneck where many consultants hamper.
Health supplements containing ingredients not approved as food ingredients and/or containing vitamins and minerals that exceed the Thai RDI value, must be registered as traditional medicines, drugs or any other related sub-categories, such as modern herbal drugs, generic drugs or new drugs.
The full process of Dietary Supplement Registration in Siam Trade Development takes 1 to 4 months according to the accuracy of your documentation. The license to import Food supplements shall be valid 3 years.[select-faq faq_id=’4427′]
