FDA's Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) is the lead office for all FDA field activities as well as providing FDA leadership on imports, inspections, and enforcement policy. ORA supports the FDA Product Centers by inspecting regulated products and manufacturers, conducting sample analysis on regulated products, and reviewing imported products offered for entry into the United States. ORA also develops FDA-wide policy on compliance and enforcement and executes FDA’s Import Strategy and Food Protection Plans.
Each FDA-TRACK program area collects, analyzes, and reports its performance measures and results. Explore the progress ORA is making to protect public health below:
I. Proportion of significant inspection violations which receive appropriate follow-up after regulatory action was taken
II. Proportion of follow-up inspections conducted due to regulatory action on significant inspection violations that moved toward compliance
III. Maintain accreditation for ORA labs
IV. Increase laboratory surge capacity in the event of terrorist attack on the food supply (radiological and chemical samples/week)
