To compare the effects of proposed regulations with the effects of promising alternatives, we estimate both the incremental benefits and costs associated with increasing the stringency of regulation and the incremental foregone benefits and cost savings associated with decreasing the stringency of regulation.

The full economic impact analyses of significant FDA regulations are no longer (as of April 2012) published in the Federal Register but are available on this site. Each economic analysis includes an assessment of the costs, benefits, and cost-effectiveness of the action, as well as assessments of the costs, benefits and cost-effectiveness of the most promising alternative actions. The Food and Drug Administration conducts economic analyses of all important proposed and final regulations.

The economic analysis may also point out ways to increase the cost-effectiveness of regulation. The information on incremental costs and benefits helps FDA management choose which controls to include and which to exclude when presented with the usual smorgasbord of ways to deal with a public health problem. Identifying such provisions enables the FDA to revise proposed regulations in ways that substantially decrease costs without appreciably reducing public health benefits. For example, the economic analysis may demonstrate that the incremental costs associated with a particular provision are very high, with little or no incremental public health effects.

Although we were unable to quantify the effects of this final rule on removing restrictions to foreign markets, the benefits are potentially large because the economy as a whole loses an annual surplus equal to about $105 million from the remaining restrictions. The final rule effectively removes from use in non-ruminant feeds those cattle tissues that account for approximay 90 percent of potential BSE infectivity. Although the animal and human health benefits associated with the additional BSE risk reduction justified the regulation, the U.S.

The identity of a food substance is usually described in terms of information such as:

The use of the word should in Agency guidances means that something is suggested or recommended, but not required. Instead, guidances describe the Agency’s current thinking on a topic and should be viewed only as recommendations, unless specific regulatory or statutory requirements are cited. back to top. FDA’s guidance documents, including this guidance, do not establish legally enforceable responsibilities.

The specifications of identity of a food substance are an important component of the safety assessment and are used to establish safe conditions of use in food.
