FDA to Launch New Board to Improve Monitoring of Supply Chain

August 24, 2021

The FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) is setting up a new board to strengthen pharmaceutical supply-chain monitoring in the wake of COVID-19-related drug shortages.

The Pharmaceutical Supply Chain Governance Board, which will get under way next month, is tasked with coordinating all CDER supply-chain initiatives and providing guidance and fixes for major supply-chain issues.

This will include overseeing the ongoing development for the agency’s existing Drug Supply-Chain System used to monitor shortages, which was first implemented last fall.

Jacqueline Corrigan-Curay, CDER’s principal deputy center director, will chair the new board.
