  • FDA Seeks Consumer Organization Applicants for Its Advisory Committees or Panels
    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration requests that any consumer organizations interested in participating in the selection of voting and/or nonvoting consumer representatives to serve on its advisory committees or panels notify FDA in writing.

    FDA is also requesting nominations for voting and/or nonvoting consumer representatives to serve on advisory committees and/or panels for which vacancies currently exist or are expected to occur in the near future.

    Nominees recommended to serve as a voting or nonvoting consumer representative may be self-nominated or may be nominated by a consumer organization.

    FDA seeks to include the views of women and men, members of all racial and ethnic groups, and individuals with and without disabilities on its advisory committees and, therefore, encourages nominations of appropriately qualified candidates from these groups.

    Any consumer organization interested in participating in the selection of an appropriate voting or nonvoting member to represent consumer interests on an FDA advisory committee or panel may send a letter or email stating that interest to FDAby July 17, 2017, for vacancies listed in this notice. Concurrently, nomination materials for prospective candidates should be sent to FDAby July 17, 2017. Nominations will be accepted for current vacancies and for those that will or may occur through November 30, 2017.
