ABOUT THIS WEBINAR (Hosted by CDER SBIA)

The goal of this webinar is to provide an introduction to FDA’s Office of Trade and Global Partnerships (OTGP). OTGP serves as the FDA lead for addressing issues related to international trade of regulated products, mutual recognition agreements, and entering into arrangements and sharing information with global counterparts. OTGP also serves as the FDA lead for addressing cross-cutting issues in multilateral organizations, such as the World Health Organization, and coordinates issues arising in multilateral forums within FDA.

Through the webinar, the audience will learn how OTGP’s work relates to pharmaceutical products and understand the different types of international agreements and arrangements used by FDA. The audience will also learn when and how to contact OTGP.
