Pharmaceutical, medical device, and insurance industries, health and safety advocates, as well as physicians and patients packed a room for two full days at the FDA’s campus to debate on these rules and regulations.

Dr. Robert Califf, the FDA commissioner, said that ultimately, the analysis of the regulations is to ensure that the system "best protects and promotes the public health and the well-being of patients."

A report of each adverse drug experience which is both serious and unexpected must be made to the Agency, as soon as possible, but no later than 15 days, after receiving information about the event.
