Recording Available: Thursday, August 06, 2020

The rules were initially set to take effect in July 2018, however, the FDA released a final rule extending the compliance dates to January 2020 for companies with more than $10 million revenue, and 2021 for manufacturers with lower revenue mark, respectively.
