For generic drugmakers, Oct. 1 is crunch time and is the date after which all ANDA amendment and prior-approval supplement applications must meet new performance goals under the Generic Drug User Fee Amendments (GDUFA) of 2012.

FDAnews has enlisted the assistance of Lachman Consulting’s Joan Janulis, a Hatch-Waxman pro and all-around expert on FDA regulation in the generic drug industry. She’ll help attendees read between the lines of the GDUFA performance metrics, associated guidance documents and MAPPs, and provide a roadmap to the post-GDUFA paradigm.

But make no mistake: this session is about much more than theory and abstraction. Attendees will discover concrete examples that illustrate what ANDA sponsors can expect and must prepare for.

In 90 fast-paced minutes, Ms. Janulis takes attendees from the big picture to nuts-and-bolts implementation. Here’s a point-by-point summary of what she’ll cover:

  • Understanding how overarching GDUFA performance goals relate to ANDA reviews
  • Identifying ANDA applications not subject to statutorily prescribed performance goals and how the FDA will handle these
  • Impact of ANDA amendments (not to be underestimated!)
  • Strategic opportunities and concealed risks associated with GDUFA
  • “Standard industry practices” that could trip drugmakers up in the new GDUFA era
  • Show-and-tell based on Lachman Consultants’ experience that steer drugmakers to higher application success rates under the new guidances
  • And much more

With time so short before GDUFA full implementation, every second of advance preparation pays off in faster drug approvals and fewer hassles.
