FD&C Act Reference Information
United States Code, Title 21
The laws of the United States are organized by subject into the United States Code. The United States Code contains only the currently enacted statutory language. The official United States Code is maintained by the Office of the Law Revision Counsel in the United States House of Representatives. The Office of the Law Revision Counsel reviews enacted laws and determines where the statutory language should be codified related to its topic. The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and subsequent amending statutes are codified into Title 21 Chapter 9 of the United States Code.
