WASHINGTON, D.C. (Aug. 3) - The Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) issued the following statement from President and CEO Scott Whitaker regarding Senate passage of the FDA Reauthorization Act of 2017:

"AdvaMed commends the Senate for their vote today on the FDA Reauthorization Act. Passage of this important legislation will enable FDA to continue its critical mission of ensuring safe and effective medical devices and diagnostics remain available to patients everywhere.

"The robust FDA performance goals, process improvements, increased accountability and additional resources provided for under the new user fee agreement represent a victory for the agency, innovation and, most importantly, patients.
