Executive Summary

Medtech counterfeiters are endangering the lives of US patients with their illicit trade in counterfeit devices to American hospitals, and Congress could assist by giving the FDA the authority to destroy the fakes, Johnson & Johnson executive Rich Kaeser says. Check out his comments here.

“Lawmakers play a critical role in strengthening our nation’s laws to reduce incentives for engaging in illegal trade. As such, Johnson & Johnson is very pleased to support H.R. 5663, the ‘Safeguarding Therapeutics Act,’ which extends FDA authority to destroy counterfeit devices and combination products valued at $2,500 or less.” – Rich Kaeser, VP of global brand protection, Johnson & Johnson
