What Sequestration Means To The FDA - by FDA Matters

This is a good article that highlights what Sequestration means to the FDA.

Funding Cutbacks at FDA: A Sequester Primer « FDA Matters:

" . . .  If food is less safe…if drug and devices reviews go more slowly….if problems with imports increase….and if regulatory science and agency modernization stall….then there is a huge loss to the American people.

This loss is made larger by the knowledge that the agency’s mission is not static.  Congress has passed 6 new laws since 2009 giving FDA substantially more responsibility. Globalization and complex science makes the agency’s job larger and more difficult each year.

FDA staff wasn’t large enough to get the whole job done last year. Problems will  multiply quickly over the coming months as existing employees represent an every smaller proportion of the numbers needed to carry out this year’s and next year’s responsibilities."
