FDA goes to China

The FDA plans to place eight staff members in China to expand its efforts to ensure safety of medical devices, drugs, and food coming into the United States from international markets, the agency announced. If the Chinese government agrees to the staffing, the FDA will station the staff at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and the U.S. Consulates General in Shanghai and Guangzhou.

The new positions enhance ongoing efforts to focus on the safety of devices and other FDA regulated products in global markets. The FDA’s “Beyond our Borders” initiative seeks to improve FDA relationships and cooperation with its counterparts in other countries.
