The importance of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s mission cannot be overstated. Consumers rely on the FDA to ensure that safe, high-quality products are available every day in the marketplace. But the FDA’s reviews and policymaking processes have fallen behind.
Potential Path Forward
The Consumer Brands Association believes the FDA can — and must — create a modernized regulatory system to pair with key structural and governance changes to better provide for consumer safety and keep pace with rapidly evolving consumer preferences and growing opportunities to introduce innovative products to the marketplace.
Structure and Governance
Consumer Brands is calling on the FDA to develop and implement a structured, prioritized regulatory agenda for its foods program, utilizing a transparent process that allows for stakeholder input and includes a public process for rulemaking and issuance of guidance.
Reforms to Modernize the FDA
Consumer Brands is also recommending nine high value, product-related policies that embrace technology and reframe the FDA’s food program operations.
