ABOUT THIS WEBINAR
On April 13, 2022, FDA published a draft guidance for industry titled Considerations for Waiver Requests for pH Adjusters in Generic Drug Products Intended for Parenteral, Ophthalmic, or Otic Use. This draft guidance is intended to assist Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) applicants that reference a reference listed drug (RLD) intended for parenteral, ophthalmic, or otic use but are seeking approval of a drug that is qualitatively (Q1) different or quantitatively (Q2) different from the RLD with respect to a pH adjuster(s).
This draft guidance identifies the type of information FDA may generally consider in evaluating a waiver request for pH adjusters in generic drug products intended for parenteral, ophthalmic, or otic use and provides recommendations to ANDA applicants regarding the submission and content of such a waiver request. This draft guidance may help to streamline the drug development process for applicants by enabling flexibility in the regulatory requirements for how a particular applicant meets the statutory standards for approval.
This webinar will take a deeper look at the draft guidance, expound on the Agency’s recommendations to ANDA applicants regarding the submission and content of such a waiver request, and answer questions submitted to the Federal Register Notice.
- Provide an overview of the draft guidance for industry
- Provide clarification and rationale for the Agency’s recommendations for applicants requesting 314.99(b) waivers for Q1/Q2 differences in pH adjuster between the proposed and RLD formulations and FDA’s waiver request evaluation process
- Address questions submitted to the Federal Register Notice
- Generic drug industry, including current and potential generic drugs applicants
- Regulatory reviewers and policy makers for generic drug development and assessments
