International Activities - Visitors from Hebei and Jiangxi Provinces in the People's Republic of China
FDA Veterinarian Newsletter January/February 2003 Volume XVIII, No 1
On December 20, 2002, a group of visitors from Hebei and Jiangxi Provinces in the People's Republic of China met with CVM's international, GMP, and compliance staffs to be briefed on CVM regulatory programs. CVM believes it is valuable to exchange information with other countries concerning the policies and procedures that FDA uses to regulate products. Each year CVM receives approximately 40 groups of foreign visitors who discuss a variety of topics, including the Center's organization, regulatory processes, research programs, and new initiatives. These visitors return to their countries with a greater understanding of health and regulatory issues and approaches in the United States, the Center's role as a public health protection agency, and what is needed to meet FDA's requirements.
