Training Course Syllabus:

The Veterinary Drug Approval Process and FDA Regulatory Oversight: 2-day In-Person Seminar

Course Description:

The U.S. Food and Drug Administrations Center for Veterinary Medicine or CVM is responsible for the approval of veterinary drug products intended for both family pets and food-producing animals. However, FDA does not regulate all products intended for animal use. Jurisdiction over animal products including licensed biologics such as vaccines is shared with a number of other federal agencies. For example, animal vaccines, animal disease diagnostic devices and some animal biologics are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agricultures Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service or APHIS; and products such as flea and tick collars are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency.

This seminar on veterinary medicine regulations will provide attendees with an understanding of FDAs veterinary drug approval process. This two day interactive course will cover:

Premarket approval process
Various sections of a New Animal Drug Application
Strategies for navigating the FDA approval process and for expending product approval
The nature of shared jurisdiction over veterinary products in certain cases.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completing this course on veterinary medicine regulations participants will:

  • Understand how the U.S. Food and Drug Administration regulates veterinary drug product.
  • Understand how FDAs Center for Veterinary Medicine is organized.
  • Discuss the process by which veterinary drug products are reviewed and approved.
  • Learn how to open an INAD File and request fee waivers.
  • Obtain a working knowledge of various sections included within an NADA.
  • Develop a deep understanding of what is needed to substantiate product characterization, target safety and effectiveness.
  • Analyze FDAs rules governing chemistry, manufacturing and controls or CMC.
  • Understand the various components of an animal field study to support product approval.
  • Discuss the difference between FDAs various user fees and fee waivers.
  • Identify the elements of an FDA compliant label.
  • Develop a corporate compliance strategy covering labeling, marketing and advertising.
  • Problem solving methods to mitigate regulatory enforcement risks.
  • Explain how jurisdiction is split between various Federal agencies in a certain cases.
  • Learn how animal feed, veterinary devices, OTC drug products and nutritional supplement are regulated in the U.S.
