The Congress provided FDA with this central authority more than 30 years ago, and we should not weaken the agency's effectiveness or ability to meet its mandate to protect the public health and safety.

AdvaMed member companies produce the medical devices, diagnostic products and health information systems that are transforming health care through earlier disease detection, less invasive procedures and more effective treatments. Our members produce nearly 90 percent of the health care technology purchased annually in the United States and more than 50 percent purchased annually around the world.
