Course Description 

The Regulatory Department is the key contact with regulatory agencies.  Regulatory must prepare documents that inform the Agency about the proposed development plan, keep the Agency up to date and answer any questions the Agency has about an on-going investigation, request and prepare for meetings with the Agency to discuss development plans, construct and write the marketing application and submit any updates to the marketing application in a concise and informative manner. 

Submissions to a regulatory agency involve more than just writing. They also encompass strategy, editing, publishing and systematic tracking of key information. Through lectures, case studies, and hands-on exercises, new and experienced regulatory professionals learn how to work with the regulations, guidance documents and style guides to produce submissions that comply with the requirements and are clear to the reviewers. 

In this practical course, approved drug labels and summary basis of approvals are used to help students acquire the knowledge and insight needed to understand and begin to construct core U.S. drug and biologics submissions, including pre-marketing (IND), and marketing (NDA/CTD) applications. Participants also gain experience with tools that help manage timelines and sections needed from contributors. 

Learning Objectives 

  • Find the required regulations and guidance documents for drug and biologic submissions 
  • Use regulations and guidance documents to outline and construct a variety of drug and biologic submissions 
  • Formulate a working knowledge of regulatory submissions, publishing, and style guides 
  • Create checklists that encompass timelines and sections needed from contributors 
Who Should Attend

  • Any part of the drug development team who wishes to know more about the IND submission and amendment process such as: regulatory associates, quality assurance, manufacturing, clinical, project management, and pre-clinical personnel will benefit from this course
