Read Report of the Secretary's Advisory Committee on Regulatory Reform 

Welcome to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Regulatory Reform Web-Site.  On June 8, 2001, HHS Secretary Thompson announced a Department-wide initiative to reduce regulatory burdens in health care and respond faster to the concerns of health care providers, state and local governments, and individual Americans who are affected by HHS rules.  As part of this initiative, the Department established the Secretary's Advisory Committee on Regulatory Reform to provide findings in and recommendations regarding potential regulatory changes.  The committee addressed four broad areas: health care delivery, health systems operations, biomedical and health research, and the development of pharmaceuticals and other products.
