¡Viva la regulation!
The Food & Drug Administration is opening an office in Mexico City, as it looks to expand its presence outside of the U.S.
The federal watchdog agency’s latest outpost is its third in Latin America and 10th international post in the past 13 months.
Staff members at the Mexico City post will work with their Mexican counterparts to “harmonize regulations and guidance standards and to work on other collaborative initiatives” by sharing information about each country’s respective regulatory requirements for both medical products and food safety, according to a press release.
The Mexico City post will report to the FDA’s Latin America headquarters in Costa Rica.
