How to Report a Shortage or Supply Issue
Note to Industry: FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) Drug Shortage Program appreciates all notifications of potential and actual supply issues. Please email email@example.com to report any potential or actual shortage issues.
Reporting a Drug Shortage or Supply Issue
- Reporting to FDA
Contact CDER by email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Contact CDER by phone: 888-INFOFDA (888-463-6332) or 301-796-3400
- Reporting to the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)
Use the Society's Drug Product Shortages Report form (non-FDA site)
