About FDA

Dictionary: As more of the products used by Americans are made abroad ORA is under tremendous pressure to increase overseas inspections. As such, trip planning is an essential component of ORA’s business structure. This measure allows ORA to track the reasons for trip cancellations and actively work to ensure that foreign inspections are completed.
