The FDA said it was making the move out of concern for the safety and well-being of its staff, as well as due to industry concerns about visitors to their facilities. The move applies to inspections that the agency conducts every few years based on a risk analysis, the FDA said.
"Importantly, all domestic for-cause inspection assignments will be evaluated and will proceed if mission-critical," said FDA Commissioner Dr. Stephen Hahn in a press statement.
The agency's announcement follows a similar announcement earlier in March, when it suspended inspections at international facilities through the end of April.
