Transparency at the FDA?

from Jon Benninger's BLOG
FDA introduces "Transparency Blog" to gather public input online

The FDA has introduced what it is calling the "FDA Transparency Blog" in an effort to improve its communication with the public. The blog went live on June 2 and will include a different question each week. The questions to be posed can be found in the FDA's June 3 Federal Register notice (click here). There is also a public meeting on the topic of FDA transparency set for June 24 in Washington. Information about attending (it's free) and speaking is available in the Federal Register notice. Topics such as "Freedom of Information Act" requests, and access to information about enforcement activities, product approvals, recalls and other agency actions are specifically mentioned in the notice as areas of focus.
