FDA’s Office of Generic Drugs (OGD) ensures, through a scientific and regulatory process, that Americans have access to safe, effective, and high-quality generic drugs. One of the ways OGD supports generic drug development and regulatory activities is to provide constructive feedback on proposed generic development plan and prospective submission prior to an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) submission via meetings.

In this webinar, FDA will provide an overview of the types of pre-ANDA meetings under GDFUA III, with specific focuses on changes and new features of pre-submission meetings. FDA will:

  • Address how the redesigned scope and features of the pre-submission meeting may benefit preparation of ANDA submission and its regulatory assessment post submission
  • Discuss a hypothetical case to illustrate how to prepare a successful pre-submission meeting request
  • Host a panel discussion on topics pertinent to the generic drug industry
  • Answer questions during live Q&A sessions with FDA experts


  • The generic drug industry, consultants, regulatory affairs professionals, or contractors, with an emphasis on those who are involved in generic drug development, plan to submit an ANDA, or are in the process of submitting an ANDA or have submitted an ANDA
  • Regulatory reviewers for generic drug development and assessments


  • Overview of scope and new features of pre-submission meetings under GDUFA III
  • Benefits of pre-submission meetings
  • How and when to utilize pre-submission meetings
  • Preparation of pre-submission meeting request
