Academy Solicits Expertise from Members and DPGs on New Regulatory Comments

Members have an opportunity by working within their dietetic practice groups to comment on several new regulations and agency initiatives, including Reducing Sodium Consumption; Essential Health Benefits; Nutrition Facts Labeling; and two Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program initiatives.

The Academy regularly solicits and incorporates evidence-based opinions of DPGs when drafting comments to federal agency notices, agency initiatives and proposed regulations, including:

  • Forwarding to DPG chairs or public policy designates notices of all regulatory initiatives upon which the Academy is considering commenting, utilizing templates and encouraging chairs to forward to public policy representatives, members with expertise on the attached issues or the broader DPG membership.
  • Asking DPGs whether they recommend the Academy comment on the proposed regulation/notice.
  • Soliciting substantive answers to specific questions or issues raised by an agency's proposed regulation.
  • Asking DPG leaders to work within each DPG as appropriate to decide whether to submit substantive comments/recommendations to the Academy for incorporation in the Academy's regulatory response.
  • Collecting comments from DPG members and soliciting them on behalf of the DPG to the Academy under the applicable timeframe.

Please note: We are not seeking individual comments from members, rather a set of comments from the DPG. The Academy reminds members that it is critical for every respondent to provide evidence-based data with citations to support their positions to make it possible to utilize their expertise. As with all public comment periods, citizens are welcome to comment as individuals.
