The Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (FDASIA) was signed into law on July 9, 2012 by President Obama. The law allows the FDA to collect "user fees" to help fund reviews of innovator drugs, medical devices, generic drugs and biosimilars.

"The legislation will enhance the development and review of innovative new therapies through increased transparency and scientific dialogue, advancements in regulatory science and strengthened post-market review. It will also increase the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) access to external expertise to improve the drug review process," Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) President and CEO Jim Greenwood said in a statement.
