Critical Milestones Completed at New Law's Six-Month Mark

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today announced the completion of two tasks the agency was required to carry out within 180 days of the signing of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act. July 3, the deadline required by law, the FDA issued a strategy for identifying and preventing the entry of smuggled food, and draft guidance for the dietary supplement industry on assuring the safety of new dietary ingredients (NDI).

A more detailed description of FDA’s accomplishments at the new law’s six-month mark is available.
