President Bush Signs FDA Amendments Act

September 27, 2007

Earlier today, the White House announced that President Bush signed H.R. 3580, the FDA Amendments Act of 2007, into law.  The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services subsequently issued an announcement praising the new law as "an important step forward in ensuring the safety of drugs and medical devices."  A copy of the enrolled bill sent to the President is available here.  A copy of the public law, as well as FDA’s PDUFA IV "goals documents" (and perhaps the Fiscal Year 2008 user fee rates), should be available shortly.  Any signing statement that might accompany the new law will be available in the Weekly Compilation of Presidential Documents.
