FDA Advisory Committees - FDA Office of the Commissioner (OC) - Risk Communication Advisory Committee (RCAC)
Risk Communication Advisory Committee (RCAC)
The RCAC advises the Commissioner of the Food and Drugs or designee on methods to effectively communicate risk associated with products regulated by the Food and Drug Administration and in discharging responsibilities as they relate to helping to ensure safe and effective drugs for human use and any other product for which the Food and Drug Administration has regulatory responsibility. The Committee reviews and evaluates strategies and programs designed to communicate with the public about the risks and benefits of FDA-regulated products so as to facilitate optimal use of these products. It also reviews and evaluates research relevant to such communication to the public by both FDA and other entities, and facilities interactively sharing risk and benefit information with the public to enable people to make informed independent judgments about use of FDA-regulated products.
