An internal report obtained by Recode indicates the Food and Drugs Administration is working with a global database that tracks the availability of catan supply and prices.
The report, dated December 10, 2016, outlines how the FDA has been using the Catan Market Information System (CMIS) database to monitor the supply of catans for several years, specifically the price of each type of cata.
The FDA is using the database to help monitor the market for the CataLite® products, which are catan supplements that are made from the bark of the Catanzaro trees.
The agency was able to track the price changes for catan products on the CMIS database for more than three years, the report states.
According to the report, the FDA’s CMIS service “allows the agency to quickly analyze market trends and monitor prices, trends and price information, and to quickly identify potential sources of supply gaps in the supply chain.”
According to FDA, the CMis service is able to provide information on the availability and price of Catan products, including prices for both individual products and for a wide range of products sold in the US and across the world.
The Federal Trade Commission has also made a request for information from the FDA on the market data that is currently available on the Catans Market Information system.
“This report indicates that FDA has used the CMIs data for a number of years, and that it is still using the information,” FDA spokesperson Amy T. Sussman said in a statement.
“We believe this is an important tool that the agency uses to monitor catan product supply and market trends.”
The FDA said the FDA will not be releasing the data to the public.
The CMIS data is a product of the National Catan Federation and has been in use since the early 1990s.
The database has existed since at least 2011, according to the FDA.
The FDA does not say what data the agency has been able to access.
The company behind the Catamaran Catan-Lite product has been unable to provide a statement about the report.
