In accordance with its mission, “The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the USA is responsible for protecting public health by assuring the safety, efficacy and security of human and veterinary drugs, biological products, medical devices, food supply, cosmetics, and products that emit radiation.” The FDA is also responsible for advancing public health by helping to speed up the progress of innovations that make medicines more effective, safer, and more affordable and by helping the public to obtain the accurate, science-based information they need to use medicines and foods to maintain and improve their health. The FDA also has responsibility for regulating the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of tobacco products to protect the public health and to reduce tobacco use by minors. Finally, the FDA plays a significant role in the national counter-terrorism capability. It fulfills this responsibility by ensuring the security of the food supply and by fostering the development of medical products to respond to deliberate and naturally emerging public health threats.
