Read Frequently Asked Questions

This training on combination product regulations will evaluate the chief areas of concern or change in the new CGMP requirements for combination products, 21 CFR Part 4, and clarify many of the issues and questions that arise involving combination products.

Why Should You Attend:

There has been much past confusion on the production and handling of drug / device (and/or biologics) combination products. Companies involved in the production of such products have pieced together what they've considered the applicable elements of the pharma and device CGMPs, 21 CFR 210/211 and 820; sometimes with ambiguous advice from the agency, resulting in some disagreements during compliance audits.

Do not let yourself or your company be caught off guard by the new CGMP requirements for combination products. Attend this training to enhance your awareness of these new cGMP requirements and modify internal audits to match this FDA shift. This training will be a step-by-step review of the key elements of the U.S. FDA's new final rule, "Current Good Manufacturing Practice Requirements for Combination Products", 21 CFR Part 4. The presenter will evaluate and clarify many of the pertinent issues and questions that arise involving combination products.

This session will provide valuable assistance to all regulated companies in evaluating their existing or proposed CGMP compliance and internal audit emphasis for the production of combination products, as a sub-contractor or primary manufacturer. Once you have recognized the danger and likely locations of potential problem areas, a company can evaluate / perform a gap analysis, and then put in place the necessary fixes to ensure compliance to the new rule.

Topic Background:

The U.S. FDA has issued the long-awaited CGMPs for Drug / Device and/ or Biologics Combination Products - 21 CFR Part 4, Final Rule, effective July 22, 2013.

This new final rule, "Current Good Manufacturing Practice Requirements for Combination Products", 21 CFR Part 4, clarifies many of these issues involving combination products including: 1) two or more of device, drug, biologic; 2) physically combined; or 3) packaged together; or 4) packaged separately but intended for use only with another, different type of medical product ("cross-labeling"). While the constituent parts of a combination product retain their regulatory status, there have not been specific regulations clarifying the applicability of the CGMPs to such combinations.
