The Food & Drug Administration launched a transparency website for the Center for Devices and Radiological Health, part of its ongoing transparency initiative.

The new CDRH site will host new information on the agency’s decisions regarding medical devices and radiation-emitting products.

Other topics on the website include pre-market and post-market submissions on product performance and safety, science and research, educational resources and CDRH performance data.

A searchable “Total Product Life Cycle” database will combine pre-market and post-market device data for users, who can also provide suggestions and opinions on products via a feedback feature.

In June 2009, the FDA created a “Transparency Task Force” to solicit public input on making its decisions more transparent. In January the federal watchdog agency launched an “FDA Basics” section of its website, aimed at bringing further clarity to its day-to-day operations.
