Read Frequently Asked Questions

This webinar will discuss approaches to developing and understanding the manufacturing process for a drug substance. The information obtained will enable completion of the drug substance information in the Drug Master File – in support of Module 3 of a CTD application. The webinar will address aspects of development and manufacture of the drug substance including steps to reduce impurities. Both traditional and enhanced approaches are discussed.

Why Should You Attend:

Type 2 DMFs for Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) are needed in order to protect confidential information and allow the ability for API manufacturers to sell to multiple customers, while providing and updating their information in only one submission and one format.

Information provided in the DMF must cover all required sections of the International Conference on Harmonization (ICH) CTD guidance document covering the Module 3 drug substance section. This section requires details about the development of the API, raw materials, equipment, formulation, critical attributes, manufacturing process and controls, analytical methods, specifications, and stability.

In this webinar, you will learn the required contents of Module 3 as well as the appropriate formatting. Lifecycle management and updating requirements will be discussed, including appropriate change control and sponsor notifications. You will also gain an understanding of contact points with the FDA throughout the lifecycle of the DMF, including information requests and inspections.

Areas Covered in the Webinar:

  • Manufacturing process development
  • Process controls
  • Selection of starting materials
  • Control strategy
  • Process validation evaluation
  • Submission of information into the DMF, content & format
  • Providing letters of reference to support a sponsor CTD
  • Life cycle management of the DMF
  • Interactions with the FDA throughout the DMF lifecycle

This presentation is targeted toward the following organizational positions and disciplines and is presented in practical language understandable by all technically educated or trained individuals, regardless of specialty.

  • Quality Control
  • Process and Design Engineering
  • Process Automation
  • Manufacturing Operations
