Office of Regulatory Affairs History

The Office of Regulatory Affairs, which includes virtually all the field offices of FDA as well as a significant presence in headquarters, serves as the traditional eyes and ears of the agency through its network of investigators and laboratory analysts. ORA works closely with each of the Centers and with other components of the agency to enforce the laws that protect and advance the public health.
