FDA’s Division of Drug Information in the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) is excited to present a series of educational webinars targeting the needs of all health care professionals and students, including physicians, physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and pharmacy technicians. Interact with FDA staff from a variety of divisions and learn more about the FDA and drug regulation!

On Tuesday, November 6, 2018, at 1pm (EST), CDER’s Office of Communication, Division of Drug Information (DDI) hosted a webinar titled: FDA Drug Topics: FDA Regulation of Color Additives in Drug Products. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates color additives under the authority of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Color additives must be pre-approved by the FDA and listed in Title 21 of the Code of Federal Regulations before they may be used in drugs and other FDA-regulated products. This webinar will give you an overview of FDA’s regulation of color additives in drug products. You will learn about the color additive petition process and how a color additive is listed for use in drugs. You will also learn about the two types of color additives, certified and certification exempt, and how the certification process works. The webinar will discuss the labeling requirements for color additives in drug products and how FDA enforces these regulations.
