Patient and Consumer Stakeholder Meetings - MDUFA Reauthorization, 2015-2016


FDA will host meetings to discuss the reauthorization of the Medical Device User Fee Amendments (MDUFA). During these meetings, representatives from patient and consumer advocacy groups can discuss their views on reauthorization and provide suggestions for improving the program. The statutory authority for MDUFA expires September 30, 2017. At that time, new legislation will be required for FDA to continue collecting user fees for the medical device program. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the FD&C Act) requires that FDA consult with a range of stakeholders in developing recommendations for the next MDUFA program, and that FDA hold discussions with representatives of patient and consumer groups at least monthly during FDA's negotiations with the regulated industry.
