We contacted Novartis to discuss the license holder of the submission.
We asked Novartis who the license holder for the submission was. They said it would be Novartis Vaccines & Diagnostics, Inc. We explained then Novartis Vaccines & Diagnostics Gmbh in Marburg would be considered a contractor since they have a separate license number. Therefore, Novartis Inc would need to have a quality agreement with Novartis Gmbh. Also, if Novartis Gmbh made a change, Novartis Inc would be responsible for notifying the Agency of the change. Novartis Inc would not be able to bundle the change with Novartis Gmbh products.
We asked them to submit to the file in writing confirming that this is their intentions. They agreed.
Call Ended at 3:45 PM
