The Use of Drug Master Files & Quality Agreements 2021 

The Use of Drug Master Files & Quality Agreements 2021

The course will include the current review and enforcement climate within FDA and the manner, in which Drug Master Files (DMFs) are reviewed by FDA personnel. Besides the US, the use of DMFs in the EU, Japan, Canada and Australia will also be discussed. Similarities and differences to the U.S. system will be highlighted.

The conversion of paper to e-filings requirements with FDA will also be discussed. The process used for e-filings will be reviewed in detail. Maintaining filings for Annual Reports and DMF Amendments will also be covered.

Upon completion of this course, attendees will understand how to prepare Quality Agreements, Drug Master Files (DMFs) with the FDA and the rationale behind doing so. Participants will gain practical knowledge about what reviewers look for in DMFs, the consequences that can be expected as a result of non-compliance and the strategies for avoiding the most common DMF-related errors. The course will also emphasize the "organic" nature of DMFs, present strategies for establishing and maintaining effective change control programs, along with facilitating effective communications with regulatory agencies along with customers and vendors.

The course will also discuss the movement by U.S. FDA to convert from a paper filing system to electronic submissions for initial DMF submissions, annual updates and DMF amendments.
