Mylan Applauds Signing of Landmark "Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act"
Date:7/9/2012

PITTSBURGH, July 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mylan Inc. (Nasdaq: MYL) today applauded President Obama's signing of the "Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act," landmark legislation that will significantly enhance the safety and security of the U.S. drug supply chain, level the playing field to hold all drug manufacturers to FDA's inspection standards and improve timely access to high quality, affordable generic drugs.  

Mylan CEO Heather Bresch commented, "Mylan has long been a passionate leader and advocate for many of the key provisions included in this important piece of legislation that will help enhance our nation's drug supply chain, and we applaud the extraordinary efforts of the many in Congress who helped craft and pass this vital law in a bipartisan fashion. We believe these important updates to the 1938 law governing FDA will help to protect the health and safety of consumers by globalizing the reach of FDA to reflect today's global pharmaceutical supply chain and ensuring that all drug manufacturing facilities that supply the U.S. market are regularly inspected, regardless of whether they are based inside the U.S. or outside our borders. In particular, I am proud that the generics industry, through the landmark Generic Drug User Fee Act, has stepped up to the plate to help address an industry wide issue by providing FDA with approximately $1.5 billion over five years in order to help fund these increased inspections of drug facilities and ensure faster and more predictable review of generic drug applications."

Mylan is a global pharmaceutical company committed to setting new standards in health care. Working together around the world to provide 7 billion people access to high quality medicine, we innovate to satisfy unmet needs; make reliability and service a habit, do what's right, not what's easy and impact the future through passionate global leadership.
