For Industry: Send FDA Drug Shortage and Supply Notifications
Industry can notify FDA Drug Shortage Staff via CDER Direct NextGen Portal. This portal is intended ONLY for drug manufacturers/applicants. Industry can notify the FDA Drug Shortage Staff of new discontinuances, GMP issues, increase in product demand, recalls, supply interruptions, or other events. If you have any questions, please contact: email@example.com
Note to Industry: FDA's Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) Drug Shortage Program appreciates all notifications of potential and actual supply issues. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to report any potential or actual shortage issues.
Reporting a Drug Shortage or Supply Issue

Contact CDER Drug Shortages by email: email@example.com

- Reporting to the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP)
