Look! FDA - "We Moved Forward on Many Fronts This Year" - Margaret A. Hamburg, M.D.

At the FDA, the agency that I?ve had the privilege to lead for the past five years, I am gratified to report that we have a lot to be proud of this year. In fact, this past year?s accomplishments on behalf of public health have been as substantial as any in FDA?s recent history.

We moved significantly forward, for example, in creating a system that will reduce foodborne illness, approving novel medical products in cutting-edge areas of science, and continuing to develop our new tobacco control program. We worked successfully with Congress and with regulated industry to reach agreement on a number of difficult issues, while continuing to use the law to the full extent possible to protect consumers and advance public health.

While there were many significant actions and events to recognize, below are some of the highlights of 2013.

In the foods area, there were many new actions this year that will have a long-standing impact on improving our food supply for consumers. Throughout the year we have been proposing new rules to reach the goals set forth by the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). These science-based standards will help ensure the safety of all foods produced for our market, whether they come from the U.S. or from other countries.
