FDA Launches Web-based Resource to Make Regulatory Information More Accessible

Today, as part of the third phase of the Transparency Initiative, FDA launched a web-based resource called FDA Basics for Industry to provide basic information about the regulatory process, including information that is frequently requested by industry.  

FDA Basics for Industry includes:

  • Easier access to frequently requested content, including, guidance documents, information about the review process, and registration and listing information
  • Links to training modules for industry, such as the Center for Devices and Radiological Health’s CDRH Learn educational tool
  • Answers to questions frequently asked by industry

The launch of FDA Basics for Industry is one of the 19 steps outlined in a report issued today by the Transparency Task Force about ways FDA can improve its transparency to regulated industry.

Visit FDA Basics for Industry and let us know what you think.  You can leave a comment on this blog or send an email to webmail@oc.fda.gov.

    When can we hope for the FDA to take the next step beyond publishing user-friendly information and apply linked data principles to make information machine-executable? See http://gov20.govfresh.com/open-data-accountability-citizen-utility-and-economic-opportunity/ Both for the data published by FDA, but also for the data submitted to FDA?

    I think every step the FDA takes to be more open benefits all those whom it serves. I think this is an excellent addition to the FDA site.

    The more one is exposed to the sun the more one can reduce the SPF factor of the lotion at the risk of the skin becoming
    dried out, leathery and full of wrinkles.
    This is to slough off any dead or excess skin before applying
    the lotion. They impart a brown color to the
    concoction, which immediately turns your skin brown.

    However, if you are remodeling your kitchen, you should preserve the originality of your kitchen and only apply essential components
    from the new layout that you have picked, this kind of as only including stools but trying to keep other things,
    or maybe only rearranging the placement of the components of the existing island.

    With these facts, it became apparent that no matter how great these
    cabinets looked — I was not going to buy something made of particle board.
    If the cost estimates are too low, the project
    will go over budget – sometimes significantly so.
