FDARA contains reauthorizations of the user fee agreements that support the FDA’s evaluation of prescription drugs, medical devices, generic drugs and biosimilar products.

Designed to provide essential resources that improve efficiency in the review process, the user fee agreements extend through fiscal year 2022.
