About FDA

Non-Public Information Sharing Program

Description: Utilize the Agency-wide IT system (AIMS) for tracking and reporting exchanges of non-public information between the FDA and foreign counterparts. Utilizing this system will allow accurate, detailed and timely information exchanges, the ability to monitor and track public health trends as a result of analyzing the type of information that is being requested and shared, and the capability to run detailed reports. For example, by sharing public and non-public information with international regulatory counterparts about recalls in the U.S. of products that have been distributed abroad, FDA advances and expands its consumer protection mission, regardless of where those consumers are located, especially in a globalized economy where supply chains have no borders.

OIP’s key projects are ongoing but will no longer be tracked in FDA-TRACK. Going forward, on a rotating schedule, the Foreign Offices will summarize their efforts related to outreach, technical assistance, capacity-building, relationship-building, etc. during the Quarterly FDA-TRACK Briefing. The notes from their reports will be documented in the Quarterly Briefing Summary on the FDA-TRACK webpage.
