FDA Organization

FDA is an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services.

Effective March 31, 2019, FDA began operational implementation of an agency reorganization. FDA’s reorganization reflects the agency’s commitment to modernizing its structure to advance its mission to protect and promote public health, and to meet the challenges of rapid innovation across the industries regulated by FDA. The FDA’s reorganization will realign several entities across the agency to promote strategic priorities, and will elevate the role of the centers, offices and field forces.

The following organization chart reflects the new structure under which FDA will operate.
