FDA Systems Recognition

9/6/2013

FDA has published a "Frequently Asked Questions" document that describes a new activity that the agency has been developing and piloting over the past few years called systems recognition. While not a FSMA provision, systems recognition is part of FDA's broader toolbox for import safety and is referenced in the recently published Proposed Rule for Foreign Supplier Verification Programs (FSVPs) under FSMA. FDA is accepting public comments on the systems recognition document.
