About This Reference Edition of the FD&C Act

This page is under revision. For the most current official legislative enactments, please go to the Office of Law Revision Counsel, United States Code.

The FDA's online reference edition of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act is based on the United States Government Printing Office Federal Digital System (FDsys) version of the United States Code, 2006 Edition, Supplement 3 current through January 5, 2010. FDsys contains virtual main editions of the U.S. Code. The information contained in the U.S. Code on FDsys has been provided to GPO by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel of the U.S. House of Representatives. While every effort has been made to ensure that the U.S. Code database on FDsys is accurate, those using it for legal research should verify their results against the printed version of the U.S. Code available through the Government Printing Office.
