Freedom of Information (FOI)

Electronic Reading Room

The 1996 amendments to the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) mandate publicly accessible "electronic reading rooms" with agency FOIA response materials and other information routinely available to the public, with electronic search and indexing features.

Before submitting an FOIA request, please check to see if the information you are looking for is already available on FDA's Web site. You can use our search engine to help you find what you're looking for.

If you wish to visit an FDA Public Reading Room in person, they are located at:

  • Division of Freedom of Information, 5600 Fishers Lane, Room 12A-30, Rockville, MD 20857

  • Division of Dockets Management, 5630 Fishers Lane, Room 1061, Mail Stop HFA-305, Rockville, MD 20852.

Hours of operation for both sites are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

For a general overview of the Freedom of Information Act see the U.S. Department of Justice's FOIA homepage.
