Strategic Plan for Regulatory Science

Advancing Regulatory Science at FDA: A Strategic Plan (August 2011)

FDA's core responsibility is to protect consumers by applying the best possible science to its regulatory activities — from pre-market review of efficacy and safety to post-market product surveillance to review of product quality.

In 2011, FDA developed a strategic plan for regulatory science in which it identified eight priority areas where new or enhanced engagement in regulatory science research is essential to advancing its regulatory mission.

In 2013, FDA added a ninth strategic priority Strengthening the Global Product Safety Net.
