Draft Proposal

In the weekly FDA publication, FDA Enforcement Report, FDA should disclose when the U.S. Department of Justice files a case seeking enforcement action on FDA’s behalf in a court of law and the final determination of that case, if known. 


Reasoning: Improved public access to information about prosecutions and other court cases pursued by FDA provides the public with current information about violative industry activities that jeopardize the public health.  Additional access to this information provides the public with a better understanding of the activities FDA is undertaking to protect the public health. 

In addition, ready access to this information may have a deterrent effect on related industries by making more apparent the consequences of failure to comply with the law.
