FDA Pushes Global Strategy to Better Secure Supply Chain

 The FDA’s work toward tighter supply chain control through international regulatory cooperation is falling short, but a new global strategy may speed up the agency’s progress, a top FDA official says. The next several years are critical in the agency’s transformation to a “global agency,” John Taylor, the FDA’s acting principal deputy commissioner, said Feb. 14 at a Pew Charitable Trusts conference in Washington, D.C., on supply chain safety. To achieve adequate supply chain control, Taylor said, the FDA needs novel and updated enforcement tools, a global alliance of regulators, new authorities to create proactive tools for product safety, adequate funding for inspections, examinations and sample collections and analysis, and updated systems, including IT support, to assist with increased workload.
