Medical device labeling update
FDA's Office of Device Evaluation is holding a public meeting in September to discuss medical device labeling and the agency's proposed labeling information summaries (tentatively called "essential prescribing information" [EPI]).
Susan Alpert director of the Office said adding EPI to labels would not require new labeling information. The goal she said is to find a better way to package critical product information so that it is more likely to be seen and read by consumers many of whom currently don't read labels.
