Tomorrow and Friday, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will hold public hearings to provide an opportunity for what it calls “broad” public participation and comment on promotion of FDA-regulated medical products (including prescription drugs for humans and animals, prescription biologics, and medical devices) using the Internet and social media tools. The hearings will take place at the National Transportation and Safety Board Conference Center, 429 L’Enfant Plaza, SW., Washington, DC 20594, from 8:00 until 5:00 each day.
A live webcast link will be made available at this link.
It is my belief that much of the information shared and discussed this week will form the basis for similar hearings where other FDA regulated products are concerned, namely food and cosmetics. I plan to watch as much of the hearing as possible, and then share the information with you.
