FDA-TRACK: Center for Drug Evaluation & Research - Post-Approval Safety Monitoring - Drug Shortages Dashboard

FDA-TRACK CDER Home

FDA-TRACK is FDA's agency-wide performance management program that monitors, analyzes and reports key performance data and projects for FDA's program offices and cross-cutting initiatives.

FDA takes great efforts, within its legal authority, to address and prevent drug shortages, which can occur for many reasons, including manufacturing and quality problems, delays, and discontinuations. FDA responds to potential drug shortages by taking actions to address their underlying causes and to enhance product availability. FDA determines how best to address each shortage situation based on its cause and the public health risk associated with the shortage by working with firms to address any potential risks to keep medically necessary products available while also ensuring there is not going to be harm to patients associated with the quality issues.

For a complete list of CDER measures and their relevant FDA-TRACK dashboard, refer to the FDA-TRACK CDER Index.
