FDA to hold meetings on Bioterrorism Act record-keeping requirement
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration will hold five meetings throughout the country in June to address industry questions regarding record-keeping requirements under the 2002 Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act.
The law requires that persons who manufacture, process, pack, transport, distribute, receive, hold or import food maintain records of their activities for at least two years. The records must be made available to FDA for inspection when requested.
The agency said the records help to investigate “credible threats of serious adverse health consequences or death to humans or animals.”
