  • The meeting opened with all the attendees introducing themselves
  • It was agreed that meeting in person at the AHI quarterly meetings was acceptable. The first in-person meeting of the combined group will be at the May quarterly meeting.
    • The main focus of this meeting will be to discuss each group’s perspective on the scope of the project including a discussion on any differences of opinion.
    • There will also be a discussion and agreement on how frequently between in-person meetings the two groups will meet through teleconference. There will also be a discussion and agreement on the size and composition of each group that will attend these teleconferences.
  • Similar to the capturing of the meeting minutes for the Animal Drug User Fee Act (ADUFA) negotiations, CVM will take the meeting minutes to capture the discussions when CVM and AHI meet together, distribute them for comment to all group members and then post them online for public viewing.
