    The Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA), signed into law on July 9, 2012, expands the FDA’s authorities and strengthens the agency’s ability to safeguard and advance public health by:

    Giving the authority to collect user fees from industry to fund reviews of innovator drugs, medical devices, generic drugs and biosimilar biological products;
    Promoting innovation to speed patient access to safe and effective products;
    Increasing stakeholder involvement in FDA processes; and
    Enhancing the safety of the drug supply chain.

    To help the public keep track of the agency’s progress on these and other provisions, we’ve established a 3-year implementation plan, which is planned to be updated on a monthly basis.

    Below are just some of the accomplishments FDA has achieved since the law was passed in 2012.
