- FDA Debarments/Disqualifications Search (Federal Drug Administration)
The FDA has the authority to “disqualify,” or remove, researchers from conducting clinical testing of new drugs and devices, when the agency determines that the researcher has repeatedly or deliberately not followed the rules intended to protect study subjects and ensure data integrity. Further, the FDA can disqualify a clinical investigator who has repeatedly or deliberately submitted false information to the agency or study sponsor in a required report.
Under its statutory debarment authority, the agency may also ban, or “debar” from the drug industry individuals and companies convicted of certain felonies or misdemeanors related to drug products. Once individuals have been subjected to “debarment,” they may no longer work for anyone with an approved or pending drug product application at FDA. Debarred companies may no longer submit abbreviated drug applications.
