The FDA is seeking your assistance in supporting the recovery efforts from Hurricane Maria. The agency would like to communicate with you directly about any product-specific issues related to disruptions caused by the hurricane, including current and ongoing infrastructure needs for manufacturing facilities on the island of Puerto Rico, such as fuel, transport, and communications.
As part of its ongoing efforts to alleviate drug shortages, PDA is assisting the FDA by sharing their request for information regarding the impact of Hurricane Maria on manufacturers and on drug supply.
