FDA Issues Three Final Guidances Related to Nanotechnology Applications in Regulated Products, Including Cosmetics and Food Substances
In June 2014, FDA issued three final guidance documents reflecting FDA’s current thinking on certain issues related to the use of nanotechnology in FDA-regulated products. FDA prepared these final guidances after taking into account public comment received on the corresponding draft guidance documents previously issued in 2011 and 2012. These guidance documents are being issued as part of FDA’s ongoing implementation of recommendations from FDA’s 2007 Nanotechnology Task Force Report.
