The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has launched two new online dashboards that track key metrics reflecting the impacts from the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations. The dashboards are part of FDA-TRACK, an agency-wide performance management program. There are separate dashboards for: (1) Preventive Controls and Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) Measures, and (2) Imported Food Safety Measures.
The release of these new data dashboards is consistent with one of FDA's longstanding goals for FSMA implementation: to establish and analyze metrics to track the outcomes for the FSMA regulations. FDA's intends to eventually release data tracking compliance with all seven major FSMA rules. This memorandum provides an overview of the information included in the two new dashboards and identifies some of the key takeaways from the data currently available.
