United States Food and Drug Administration

Office of Medication Error Prevention and Risk Management (OMEPRM) includes Division of Medication Error Prevention and Analysis (DMEPA) and Division of Risk Management (DRISK). DMEPA looks to minimize medication errors in the U.S. healthcare system. As part of the FDA preapproval process for new drug products, we review proposed proprietary drug names, container labels and other labeling, packaging, product design, and human factors protocols and study results to prevent medication errors. We also monitor and analyze medication error reports for marketed products to determine if regulatory actions such as labeling revisions or product redesign are needed to address reported errors. DRISK reviews all proposed REMS, REMS modifications, and REMS assessments for all products with approved REMS for conformance with current FDA standards.
