About the Transparency Blog

The purpose of FDA’s Transparency Blog is to create a dialogue with the public about the activities that FDA is engaged in to protect and promote the public health.  The blog provides information to the public about what FDA is doing, the bases for FDA’s decisions, and the processes used to make Agency decisions.  The blog also gives the public the opportunity to provide the Agency with feedback on the blog topics posted.

We encourage your comments.  Your ideas and concerns are important to ensure that a broad range of Americans are active and informed participants in the discussion.

The Transparency Blog is part of FDA’s Transparency Initiative, which FDA Commissioner Dr. Margaret A. Hamburg launched in June 2009.  The initiative is overseen by a Task Force that includes key leaders of FDA.   For more information about the Transparency Initiative, click on the link below.
