Celebrating the 100 Years

On June 20, 2006, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the passage of its founding law, the 1906 Pure Food and Drugs Act.

The Centennial is a major milestone in FDA's celebrated history and the enactment of the 1906 law transformed FDA into a scientific regulatory agency, making it the oldest consumer protection agency in the nation. The Centennial year is one during which FDA and the entire country can take pride in and reflect on the richness of FDA's history.
