(Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said it opened its Mexico City post, making it the health regulator’s third post in Latin America and 10th international post.
The health regulator said its Mexico City post will work with Mexican government officials to harmonize regulations and guidance standards, and work on other collaborative initiatives.
“FDA experts in Mexico City will work closely with local industries that ship food and medical products to the United States to improve their understanding of U.S. safety and product quality expectations,” FDA said in a statement.
The FDA’s other posts in Latin America are located in Santiago, Chile, and San Jose, Costa Rica.
