The FDA’s complex REMS requirements are likely to change in 2014.

Is industry ready for what’s coming?

Many industry watchers predict the agency will issue a new, clarifying REMS guidance in 2014.

Some of the changes might include:

  •     Standardizing REMS between brand and generic drugmakers
  •     Efforts to maintain some level of flexibility within shared REMS so individual companies can implement them
  •     Which formats and training approaches are most effective for prescriber training and how frequently prescribers should be asked to take REMS training
  •     Issues pertaining to dispenser certification and distribution of REMS drugs
  •     Addressing critics’ concerns that the FDA relies on a small amount of data regarding its decisions to require a risk mitigation plan or to discontinue one already in use

Discover the tips and tricks that will help make REMS effective today and ready for possible changes 2014?

Mark the calendar for Wednesday, Dec. 11, when REMS compliance expert Howard Dorfman conducts a tested approach to bulletproofing REMS compliance strategy.

The FDA expects industry to be able to defensibly determine whether a product demands a REMS. But the whole team needs to understand the ins and outs of the requirements if they are to make an intelligent decision. In this session, Mr. Dorfman will help attendees better understand:

  •     Negotiating with the FDA to establish appropriate measurements in assessing the “success” of any REMS
  •     Establishing intra-company policies and procedures to maximize early identification of REMS progress
  •     Documenting FDA actions and decisions to help establish both an effective risk minimization program — and the basis for any product liability defense if things go sour

Step by step, Mr. Dorfman will walk attendees through the FDA’s expectations and when and how to meet them.

A well-written and implemented REMS can safeguard against FDA enforcement actions and serve as a protection plan against high-stakes lawsuits.
