This year more than $2 trillion worth of products are expected to be imported into the United States from around the world. FDA works closely with counterpart agencies in many other countries to help assure that FDA-regulated products coming into the United States meet the standards of safety and quality that Americans expect. These products include food and animal feed, human and animal drugs, cosmetics, medical devices, vaccines and other biological products, and radiation-emitting goods.

FDA and its Chinese counterparts are developing agreements to increase cooperation and information sharing between the U.S. and Chinese governments. These agreements are aimed at protecting the public health and providing safe products to U.S. consumers.
