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 drugshortages@fda.hhs.gov to report any potential or actual shortage issues.

Reporting a Drug Shortage or Supply Issue

  • Reporting to FDA
    Contact CDER Drug Shortages by email: drugshortages@fda.hhs.gov
    Contact CDER Drug Shortages by phone: (240) 402-7770
  • Reporting to the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)
    Use the Society's Drug Product Shortages Report form disclaimer icon (non-FDA site)
    When you use this form, you are reporting a drug shortage to ASHP, not FDA. CDER partners with ASHP to minimize drug shortages and to report rapid, accurate drug shortage information.
