The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) has issued a new Policy Report entitled, "Pathway to Global Product Safety and Quality". The Policy Report discusses the challenges facing USFDA in the implementation of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in a time of rapid internationalization of the country’s food and drug supply chains. The Policy Report also highlights the fact that USFDA must face these challenges in a time of severe budgetary restriction.

The Policy Report should be of interest to students and practitioners who are studying the pace of implementation of the provisions of the FSMA.

We post the full text of the Policy Report below along with the associated Press Release.
