The 2012 IOM report Ensuring Safe Food and Medical Products through Stronger Regulatory Systems Abroad put considerable emphasis on capacity building in developing countries as a means to improve the safety of food and drugs around the world. While progress has been made on these goals, the global regulatory landscape has changed significantly since 2012. It is therefore timely to assess progress made towards these goals and the current regulatory landscape. First meeting on this topic to be held January 8, 2019-January 9, 2019. Webcast is available.
