On October 28, 2008, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a final rule requiring a statement to be included on certain human drug product labeling that provides a toll-free number for reporting side effects and specifies that the number is not intended to be used for medical advice. The rule, which confirms a January 3, 2008 interim final rule on this issue, implements provisions of the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act and the Food and Drug Administration Amendments Act of 2007. The compliance date for the final rule is July 1, 2009 (rather than the January 1, 2009 compliance date anticipated under the interim final rule).
