OTC labeling reg extension

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

FDA expects to respond to industry requests for a two-year extension of the OTC labeling final rule implementation date by Jan. 28, the agency states in recent letters to CHPA and CTFA. In the letters, FDA asks the trade groups to let it complete the request and refrain from soliciting further meetings on the subject. The agency met with CHPA and CTFA Jan. 4 and Jan. 11.

The trade associations requested the extension in October (1"The Tan Sheet" Oct. 11, 1999, p. 6)
