DUBLIN, Aug 18, 2021 – (BUSINESS WIRE) – The Veterinary Drug Approval Process and FDA Regulatory Oversight conference has been added to offer.

This two-day interactive online seminar provides attendees with an understanding of the FDA’s 2021 approval process for veterinary drugs. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (CVM) Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is responsible for approving veterinary drugs for pets and food responsible -producing animals and other animal species.

This seminar covers the process of obtaining federal government approval to commercialize new veterinary drugs that are under the jurisdiction of the FDA and, briefly, animal products that are regulated by other federal agencies.

For example, animal vaccines, animal disease diagnostics, and some biological veterinary drugs are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and some flea and tick control products are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency.

The group size is small, usually between 8 and 10 people, with plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discuss problems or challenges that the participants have experienced.

Learning goals:

The most important objectives of the seminar include learning:

  • How the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates veterinary drugs.

  • How the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine is organized.

  • The process by which veterinary medicinal products are tested and approved.

  • How to open an Investigational New Animal Drug (INAD) file.

  • The various FDA user fees, what fee waivers are available, and how to apply for a fee waiver.
