FDA launches website for food, drug companies in effort to improve accessibility

07 Jan

The Food and Drug Administration is launching a website explaining its regulations to companies as part of a broader effort to rebrand itself as a more transparent, accessible agency.

The website, dubbed “FDA Basics for Industry,” features answers to frequently asked questions about the regulation of food, drugs and medical devices. The FDA also pledged to respond to questions from manufacturers within five business days.

The FDA has long operated under strict confidentiality rules because its scientists handle reams of proprietary information from thousands of companies. But the FDA’s operating style has come under fire in recent years from critics who say the agency is too secretive.
