Combination Products Regulation, Policy & Best Practices

Main Photo


Drug and device makers are bringing ever more combination products to market, even as the rules grow ever more complex and nuanced.

Now there’s an FDA Combination Products Policy Council to contend with, plus a formal pre-Request for Designation (pre-RFD) process. The 21st Century Cures Act piles on still more new rules, and expands the role of the FDA Office of Combination Products.

Bottom line? More post-market surveillance ... tougher scrutiny of ads and marketing ... greater pressure on quality and regulatory affairs departments.

But it’s still a magic moment for combination products ... as long as you stay ahead of the rules.

Here’s how:

Plan now to attend FDAnews’s first-ever all-day conference on combination products featuring 17 experts from every background — drugs, devices, biologics, generics, regulatory, legal, consulting and more. You’ll be able to:

  • Adopt three successful tactics and strategies for obtaining jurisdictional determination, assuring certainty with submission requirements, and overcoming barriers to combination product approval
  • Understand postmarket safety reporting and current good manufacturing practices requirements for combination product and constituent part sponsors to better enable you to stay in compliance with agency mandates
  • Comply with the unique considerations for advertising and marketing your combination products
  • Know the three critical findings of a human factors study of a generic combination product with device delivery constituent part
  • Implement three best practices for submitting combination products directly to CDRH and understand three important implications of the Cures Act on these submissions

And that’s not all. Be a fly on the wall as panelists deconstruct the process of showing the FDA a generic delivers the same level of active ingredients as a reference listed drug.

You’ll come away with a deeper understanding of the new regulatory landscape and regulatory survival strategies, including safety reporting and cGMP ... up-to-date approaches to advertising and marketing ... best practices for submitting combination products directly to the CDRH ... and much more!
