  • Map data is almost always limited to the city level. Points plotted on maps zoomed to show fine-detail or street-level views are likely to imply precision that is not actually present.
  • Some actions are counted as both domestic and foreign when there are both domestic and foreign firms associated with the action.
  • Compliance data provide information on a subset of the actions used by the FDA to bring firms into compliance, specifically data pertaining to Warning Letters, Seizures, and Injunctions. The compliance actions disclosed include only finalized and completed actions and are primarily used in the domestic arena. Actions pertaining to foreign firms often take the form of import alerts, and are currently not reported in this Dashboard release.
