FDA is one of the executive agencies established by the U.S. government in the Department of Public Health (PHS) under the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). FDA mainly includes testing and registration. Medical devices, cosmetics, food and drug products need FDA registration, and FDA registration can be directly applied on the FDA official website.
FDA was established in 1906. There was no regulation on drugs in the United States, and drugs were sold through advertising before 1906. In 1938, FDA required that drugs be sold only after their safety was proved. In 1962, FDA required that drugs not only be safe but also effective before they could be sold.
