On April 29 and 30, 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is hosting a public workshop on “Accessible Standardized Medical Device Labeling."  The purpose of the event is to discuss the need for medical device labeling to be delivered in a clear, concise, and readily accessible format so that patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers may use device labeling as efficiently and effectively as possible. This public workshop aims to engage stakeholders in active discussion with FDA and to encourage public comments regarding standard content and format for medical device labeling and the use of a repository containing medical device labeling. FDA also is accepting written or electronic comments related to the public workshop; comments will be accepted until April 12, 2013.
