Why Should You Attend:

The Generic Drug User Fee Amendments of 2012 (GDUFA) enables FDA to assess user fees and bring greater predictability to the review of generic drug applications. The law requires industry to pay user fees to supplement the costs of reviewing generic drug applications and inspecting facilities. Additional resources enable FDA to reduce a current backlog of pending applications, cut the average time required to review generic drug applications for safety, and increase risk-based inspections. It is important to have an understanding of GDUFA and the new fees and requirements DMF holders must fulfill in order to achieve “Available for Reference” status. Only Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) submissions which reference “Available for Reference” API DMFs can be received by FDA. Not having clarity on the new fees and requirements could cost your organization time, money, and other critical resources.

Upon completion of this session, attendees will have a better understanding of GDUFA, its implications regarding DMFs, who in industry is impacted, the required fees, and achieving DMF “Available for Reference” status.

Topic Background:

The Generic Drug User Fee Amendments of 2012 (GDUFA) were designed to speed the delivery of safe and effective generic drugs to the public and reduce costs to industry. A Drug Master File (DMF) is a submission to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that may be used to provide confidential detailed information about facilities, processes, or articles used in the manufacturing, processing, packaging, and storing of one or more human drugs.

Although a DMF submission is not required by law or FDA regulation, it is often created to permit the FDA to review information in support of a third party’s submission without revealing the contents of the file to the third party. This maintains the confidentiality of proprietary information. DMFs usually cover the Chemistry, Manufacturing and Controls (CMC) of a drug product component (e.g., drug substance). The information contained in a DMF may be used to support an Investigational New Drug Application (IND), a New Drug Application (NDA), an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA), another DMF, an Export Application, or amendments and supplements to any of these.
