Acting Commissioner of Food and Drugs
Food and Drug Administration



This plenary session will reflect on FDA’s use of Emergency Use Authorizations (EUAs) and other resources in making drug, device, and biological products available to support the public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

An emergency use authorization, or EUA, is a regulatory pathway that allows FDA to help strengthen the nation’s public health protections by facilitating the availability and use of medical countermeasures needed during public health emergencies. Under this pathway, FDA may allow unapproved medical products or unapproved uses of approved medical products to be used in an emergency to diagnose, treat, or prevent serious or life-threatening diseases or conditions when there are no adequate, approved, and available alternatives.
