FDA Launches Public Whistleblower Site for ‘Regulatory Misconduct’
Tuesday, October 25, 2016
The FDA last week launched a whistleblower website designed to let whistleblowers let the federal safety watchdog know about allegations of “regulatory misconduct” on the part of medical device makers.
The online “Allegations of Regulatory Misconduct Form” allows anyone to report an allegation of regulatory misconduct to the FDA, the agency said Oct. 21.
“The FDA encourages people submitting allegations to include supporting information and contact information in case additional information is needed for the FDA to understand the allegation and act on the report; however you can choose to submit a report anonymously,” the agency said.
