Mastering Regulatory and Development Strategies for Generics

19 - 20 November 2020

Radisson Blu Edwardian Grafton, London

Generic manufacturers are faced with financial and commercial pressures when producing an off-patent drug as they face the prospect of many competitors bringing the same drug to market. This puts greater emphasis on pricing strategy, with prices driven down to remain competitive and resulting in lower margins. It is therefore important for generic manufacturers to competently manage the regulatory approval and compliance process to keep costs down.  
This 2-day course will provide you with strategic insight into key requirements for developing generics from a global perspective and an overview of the generics market; current trends and practices; and, future strategies for regulatory compliance. You will examine the process in the EU and US comparing and contrasting with examples and case studies. As well as learning about small molecules you will examine the regulatory procedures for biosimilars, the biological generic equivalent, which are growing year on year.  
There will be time on this course to discuss the likely implications of Brexit on regulatory strategies for generics. 

  • Examine the impact of EU and US regulatory approval for generic products
  • Clarify the criteria for submitting generic applications in Europe and US
  • Enable creation of development plan for "Right First Time" generics
