Increasing consumer access to safe high-quality and affordable generic drugs is a top priority at FDA. In recent years, with the help of user fees from industry and the traditional budget appropriations received from Congress, FDA has approved record numbers of generic drug applications. The Generic Drug User Fee Amendments (GDUFA) were reauthorized and signed into law by the President on August 18, 2017. The reauthorization, known as GDUFA II, is in effect from October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2022.
In brief videos on this page, FDA staff highlight user fees and the new features in GDUFA II.
In this video, Dr. Uhl shares a brief history of why generic drug user fees came to be, how user fees help the FDA and Industry, accomplishments in GDUFA I, and the features of GDUFA II. The 8 minute 39 second GDUFA video is broken into five segments or you can watch it in its entirety.
