FDA has widely expanded its current internet capabilities by including a new electronic Freedom of Information Act (FOI) "reading room." This feature allows users to access and download a variety of Agency documents and records.
Internet users can now directly access warning letters, inspection operation manuals, monthly import detention lists, medical device reports and other often-requested material without the time and paperwork involved with filing a traditional FOI request. The Electronic FOI Reading Room contains an index with links to all current listings, and can be reach directly from the FDA Home Page.
The Electronic FOI Reading Room is one of the latest features to be added to the FDA website to enhance its value to internet users, in keeping with the Electronic Freedom of Information Act Amendments of 1996. In addition, FDA has revised the Home Page to provide new options and specific "menu" selections for consumers, journalists and other user groups. These menus will help users to access information on a given subject from throughout the Agency, regardless of the FDA Center or office that published it.
