Drug Information Update- FDA Transparency Task Force Unveils Draft Proposals on Agency Disclosure Policies

FDA/CDER/Division of Drug Information (DDI)

The Division of Drug Information (DDI) is CDER’s focal point for public inquiries. We serve the public by providing information on human drug products and drug product regulation byFDA.


 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Transparency Task Force today released 21 draft proposals for public comment on public disclosure policies aimed at helping consumers, stakeholders, and others understand how the agency operates and makes decisions. The Transparency Task Force will review the comments and decide which proposals to recommend for implementation.

The proposals, to be published in the May 21, 2010, Federal Register, are part of the second phase of the FDA’s Transparency Initiative launched last summer by FDA Commissioner Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D.

The proposals reflect the review of more than 1,500 public comments received by the FDA after two public meetings held by the task force and extensive consideration and discussion within the agency.

The FDA is seeking public comments on the proposals in the draft report for 60 days. The task force will consider the comments received, their feasibility, resource requirements, and the priority of each proposal to arrive at recommendations for Commissioner Hamburg.
