Compliance & Enforcement

One of the highest priorities of the Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is assuring the safety of animal derived foods, and assuring that safe and effective animal drugs are available. Compliance is monitoring the adherence of regulated industry with legal, administrative, and regulatory programs and policies. Within CVM the Division of Compliance monitors the activities of our stakeholders, performs educational outreach to the field and industry, and pursues regulatory actions if warranted.
