House Bill Would Let FDA Debar Device Researchers

November 27, 2009
The FDA would gain authority to debar device clinical trial researchers convicted of felonies under a bill introduced in the House. The Strengthening of FDA Integrity Act, H.R. 3932, was introduced by Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) and has seven co-sponsors. The bill also would require the FDA to send annual debarment reports to Congress and would reduce the time it has to debar a researcher from five years to one.
