FDA Makes Inspection Info More Accessible

Rockville, MD—Companies will now have an easier time finding information about U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) facility inspections and court actions.

As part of its Transparency Initiative, FDA has developed an online tool for finding information about inspections. Users can search for facilities’ names and addresses, inspection dates, which products were involved and final inspectional classification. By the end of the year, more information will be added.

The portal is accessible at www.fda.gov/AboutFDA/Transparency/TransparencyInitiative/ucm254426.htm.
