Topic Background:

Pharmaceutical product developments, manufacturing and assessments are heavily regulated by concerned national and international authorities. To attain marketing authorizations usually in each and every country or region manufacturers are required to meet specific regulations and standards which are further supported by various guidance documents. There exist huge and seemingly endless varieties of such regulations and standards, which make it extremely difficult to comprehend and apply these in an objective manner. Although all these regulations and standards are supposed to be based on scientific foundation, however, science aspect seemingly has been absent, in fact, in many case, it has been violated. By taking a “back to the basics” approach, this course will first describe the required fundamental scientific principles followed by description of most commonly required regulations and standards in a systematic way using US FDA’s regulations and standards as the base.
