Fda was founded in the year 1906. The organisation has been active for almost 112 years now. The organisation was formed after the Food and Drug Act was signed in the year 1906, by President Theodore Roosevelt. The main aim of the organisation was to make sure that there is no such misbranding or adulteration in food products. The former name of the company was the Food, Drug and Insecticide organisation, which was renamed to the current name of the organisation, FDA, in the year 1930.
Another new act called the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act was signed in the year 1938, which enabled the organisation to designate certain kinds of drugs safe to use, only after a medical professional’s recommendation. After the Thalidomide Tragedy in the year 1959, the organisation started its modern approval process. The organisation also started its approval process for drugs that are used for life-threatening diseases, like AIDS.
The headquarters of the organisation is based in 10903 New Hampshire Avenue. The name of the place is Silver Spring, and the name of the state is Maryland, USA. The area pin code is 20993-0002.
