About This Event

This two-day virtual forum offers you the opportunity to interact with FDA subject matter experts from every part of the generic drug review program. The goal of the forum is to provide information to help applicants achieve success in the development of generic drug applications, known as Abbreviated New Drug Applications (ANDAs). Our presentations will offer practical advice, case studies, and discussions about scientific issues related to generic drug applications in order to assist generic drug developers with minimizing application deficiencies.


  • Competitive Generic Therapies (CGT)
  • Application Case Studies on FDA’s Action Letter Timing
  • Pre-ANDA Interactions with the FDA
  • Current Global Generic Drug Landscape Harmonizing Regulatory Science through the International Council for Harmonization (ICH)
