Application Developers Alliance Urges FDA to Convene Application Developers, Publishers, and Stakeholders on Mobile Medical App Guidance

Washington, D.C. (August 1, 2012) Today, the Application Developers Alliance urged the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to consult app industry stakeholders as the agency develops a regulatory framework for mobile medical applications. In a letter sent to Commissioner Margaret Hamburg and to Director Jeffrey Shuren, of the Center for Devices and Radiological Health, the Alliance asked FDA to “convene app developers, mobile app publishers, external stakeholders, and experts” without delay, as Congress encouraged in the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act, signed by President Obama on July 9, 2012.
