FDA Operational Evaluation

As announced on July 19, 2022, the Reagan-Udall Foundation facilitated, via two Independent Expert Panels, operational evaluations of FDA’s human foods and tobacco programs. Each evaluation yielded a report with operational recommendations to the FDA: one for human foods and the other for tobacco. Each evaluation, and therefore report delivery, was on its own 60-business-day timeline. Both reports were delivered to the FDA Commissioner and made available to the public.
