Dr. Stephen M. Hahn, the Commissioner of Food and Drugs for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a statement on July 10, 2020, describing the agency’s intentions and approach to resuming domestic inspections in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. After temporarily suspending inspections in March 2020, FDA is working toward restarting on-site inspections during the week of July 20, 2020. However, this timeline will depend on the data about the coronavirus trajectory in a given state and locality, and the rules and guidelines that are in place by state and local governments. FDA also notes that, for the foreseeable future, domestic inspections will continue to be pre-announced to FDA regulated businesses. Note that this announcement is not limited to the food industry, but the impacts for the food industry are the focus of this memorandum.
