How does the FDA Deeming Rule impact your business? 

The FDA issues rules based on best-guess estimates of the costs and benefits to private businesses and rarely re-examines rules after they go into effect. However, recent Presidential Executive Orders require agencies to complete updated cost analyses on existing high impact* rules in order to pass new rules. Help the FDA understand the true costs of the Deeming Rule by sharing how it impacts your business. Your name, email, and company name will be kept private to protect your identity. All other information may be shared to inform policy decisions. Please review our Privacy Policy for more details.
