Senator drafts US bill aimed at safeguarding supply chain, but lacking inspection fees

This article was originally published in Scrip

Executive Summary

Congress may be preparing for the August recess, but US Senator Michael Bennet (Democrat, Colorado), has decided that it would be a good time to introduce a bill providing the FDA with mandatory recall authority and greater oversight of manufacturing quality for both foreign and domestic companies so that lawmakers could consider the issues when they reconvene. In tackling such a debated issue as how to oversee a pharmaceutical supply chain that has become globalised, Bennet's bill faces an uncertain future; it will now be referred to a health committee.
