ConOps is the acronym for a soon-to-take-place FDA restructuring that’s certain to affect drug inspections going forward.

How will the agency’s new vertically integrated, programmatically aligned environment affect the new roles and responsibilities of CDER and ORA? Which new offices and individuals will you be talking to, and how should you be talking to them? What timeframes should you expect? What will the best ways be to encourage the agency to meet its commitments when the restructuring is complete?

You’re going to need a new roadmap. And FDAnews is ready with it.

Mark your calendar for Thursday, May 31, when former CDER compliance directors Cynthia Schnedar Esq. (2014-16) and Howard Sklamberg Esq. (2012-14) reveal agency plans and how they’ll affect … you. Get ready to discover:
