From the beginning our objective has been to “engage the regulatory agencies, at both the state and federal levels, to establish a system of regulatory oversight that is fair, reasonable, responsible, and nationally consistent.


For more than 20 years, the NASC has worked constructively and cooperatively with the Food & Drug Administration, Center for Veterinary Medicine (FDA-CVM), many state regulatory agencies, as well as associations recommending regulatory policy such as the Association of American Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) and the Veterinary Drugs Directorate (VDD) – Health Canada. Without the help and cooperation of the regulatory agencies and association partners, our many collective successes would not be possible and we thank them for these positive working relationships. Together, we have helped to shape and secure the future of our industry for the benefit of millions of dogs, cats and horses around the world. We can all be very proud of the foundation we have created and the progress we have made together.

Our RESULTS speak for themselves and we have become a model for other industries as well.

We invite regulators to join the NASC as a Regulator member—at no cost to you—to take advantage of resources we have developed, as well as training opportunities we offer throughout the year to help all members better navigate our ever-evolving industry.
