FOI Services is an independent, privately-held corporation located in Montgomery County, Maryland, a suburb of Washington, D.C.
We were founded in 1975 to facilitate the flow of information under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Since its inception, FOI has specialized in Food & Drug Administration (FDA) information, providing access to a private library of over 150,000 FDA documents in all categories of products regulated by the agency.
Anyone can search descriptions of the documents we have in our library by using our DocuSearch® system at FOI Online to find unpublished records available for immediate downloading. There is no subscription or charge to search or read document descriptions; you pay only for the documents you choose to download. If you have any questions about searching, or prefer that we perform the search for you, please don't hesitate to contact our experienced information specialists.
We are always happy to place a custom Freedom of Information Act request to obtain records not already in our files.When we place your FOIA request, only our name becomes a matter of public record - we do not divulge the names of our customers, so your identity - and research interest - is kept confidential. To place a custom order, please contact us to discuss record availability, typical FDA turnaround time, potential cost, and request parameters.
Unless specified otherwise, all of the documents have been released by the U.S. Government under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act and are therefore available to the general public. FOI Services, Inc. does not guarantee the accuracy of any of the information in the documents it provides; the documents will be copies of the information supplied to FOI Services, Inc. by the government.
Documents are not sold on a "trial" basis, and are not returnable. If you receive an incorrect or illegible document, please give us a call; we will work with you to resolve any problems.
