Food and Drug Law Prohibited Actions

About the Course

The FD&C Act specifically describes what actions are violations and who will be held accountable for those actions. FDA investigators must have a thorough understanding of these sections of the law or they will not be able to determine, or adequately document, when a violation has occurred. All of FDA’s enforcement actions are associated with specific prohibited acts and/or violations of the sections of the Act that define adulteration, misbranding or lack of required approval. After completing this healthcare compliance online course, you will recognize the specific acts that are prohibited under the FD&C Act. This online training will help you identify the most commonly violated acts and recognize how FDA determines who is responsible. Finally, you will identify major cases that establish consequences for violating prohibited acts, and recognize what these consequences may be.
