Global IND Submissions

Please check back later for this seminar's current schedule, or review our other live seminars for similar courses.

Course Description 

As drug companies seek to penetrate global markets and get new drugs to markets more quickly, they are increasingly conducting drug and biologic clinical studies outside the United States.  The regulatory affairs professional must keep abreast of the ever-changing regulatory climate, and be able to complete IND-like submissions in a variety of formats, and with country/regulatory agency-specific requirements in mind.
This course will walk the participants through the country requirements, IND submission requirements, and timelines for approval in Canada, the EU, South Africa, Australia, Asia, and South America using the U.S. IND as the basis for comparison.  After the initial IND filings are reviewed, what work will be needed for maintaining the submission and closing the trial will be examined.

Learning Objectives 

At the end of this course, the participant will be familiar with how to:  

  • Find information about country specific regulations 
  • Navigate regional regulatory requirements for IND like submissions 
  • File an IND-like submission 
  • Identify translations needed 
  • Establish timelines for approval of submissions 
  • Maintain an IND-like submission 
  • Anticipate what is needed when the trial ends 

The focus of the course will be on in-depth coverage of the Canadian and EU Clinical Trial Application (CTA), going over the forms, required contents, re-use of information, and country specific requirements/information.  In addition, for Canada, the EU, and the other countries, the following information will be covered: 

  • Overview of the country
