SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

The IOM, at the request of the Commissioner, undertook a study of the use of FDA's advisory committees. In its final report in 1992, one of the IOM's recommendations was for FDA to adopt a policy of publishing an advance yearly schedule of its upcoming public advisory committee meetings in the Federal Register; FDA has implemented this recommendation. The annual publication of tentatively scheduled advisory committee meetings will provide both advisory committee members and the public with the opportunity, in advance, to schedule attendance at FDA's upcoming advisory committee meetings. Because the schedule is tentative, amendments to this notice will not be published in the Federal Register. However, changes to the schedule will be posted on the FDA advisory committees' Internet site located at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/default.htm. FDA will continue to publish a Federal Register notice 15 days in advance of each upcoming advisory committee meeting, to announce the meeting (21 CFR 14.20).

The following list announces FDA's tentatively scheduled advisory committee meetings for 2013. You may also obtain up-to-date information by calling the Advisory Committee Information Line, 1-800-741-8138 (301-443-0572 in the Washington, DC area) or on the FDA Internet Web site under our 2013 tentative scheduled meeting listing at http://www.fda.gov/AdvisoryCommittees/Calendar/ucm153468.htm.
