FDA’s Public Workshop “The Nonprescription Drug Facts Label in a Changing Consumer Marketplace 2021”

WASHINGTON – FDA is announcing a public virtual workshop titled “The Nonprescription Drug Facts Label in a Changing Consumer Marketplace 2021.” The public workshop will be held online on June 9, 2021, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. EST. 

The purpose of the public workshop is to evaluate the data and information currently available on consumer comprehension of the nonprescription Drug Facts Label (DFL) and discuss areas where improvements could be made to the format and content of the DFL. The DFL is intended to enable consumers to appropriately self-select and use nonprescription drug products safely and effectively.  FDA is seeking ways to optimize the DFL for consumer use so that it is robust, user-friendly, adaptable for use with new technologies, and compatible with traditional text/paper-based presentation. More information about the virtual public workshop is available on FDA’s workshop webpage.

Those interested in attending the virtual workshop are encouraged to register early via the Eventbrite registration page.

In addition to providing input at the public meeting, stakeholders are invited to provide their perspectives on the discussion topics and submit research, data, or information relevant to the public workshop topics to the public docket. The docket closes on August 10, 2021.
