Details of H.R. 759: FDA Globalization Act

Status: Dead

Sponsor: Rep. John Dingell, D-Mich.

Full Text: FDA Globalization Act

Retailer know-how: Introduced in January 2009, at the beginning of the 111th Congress, this bill aimed to revise standards for food, drugs, medical devices and cosmetics.

After food was deemed the highest priority, the House Energy and Commerce Committee drafted H.R. 2749 in June, says Washington, D.C.-based attorney Mark Mansour, who practices food and drug law.

“Some of [H.R. 759] made its way into H.R. 2749,” says Mansour. “The rest of it will end up in the drug and device bills.”
