Information on the Proposals which were passed by the delegates at the 2013 NCIMS is available at 2013 Proposals. The Executive Board and FDA met in a concurrence/non-concurrence board meeting October 9-10, 2014. FDA concurred with all proposals passed by the Conference with the exception of Proposal 231. The NCIMS Executive Board and FDA were unable to reach mutual concurrence on Proposal 231, therefore Proposal 231 will be referred to the next Conference.
