POSTPONED: Nonprescription Drugs Advisory Committee
In the Agency’s document entitled “Food Handler Antiseptic Drug Products for Over-the-Counter Human Use; Request for Data and Information” (December 7, 2018, 83 FR 63168) (Docket No. FDA-2018-N-3458), FDA sought input on the current use of over-the-counter antiseptics in the food handler setting and the recommended testing criteria to establish the safety and effectiveness of these products. Now that the comment period has closed, FDA plans to hold an advisory committee meeting to review the information submitted and discuss its key points.
UPDATED INFORMATION FROM THE FDA (as of 3/9/2020): “Due to extenuating circumstances, the Nonprescription Drugs Advisory Committee scheduled for March 11, 2020 is being postponed until further notice.” Presumably the postponement is related to concerns about the COVID-19 virus epidemic.
