CDER Small Business and Industry Assistance (SBIA) Presents A Deep Dive: GDUFA III Scientific Meetings Webinar


On September 30, 2022, the Generic Drug User Fee Amendments (GDUFA) were reauthorized with provisions that are in effect from October 1, 2022, through September 30, 2027 (GDUFA III). In the GDUFA III commitment letter, FDA has made a number of enhancements or changes to the existing generic drug program’s pre-ANDA and ANDA process as it relates to scientific meetings that help provide clarity to current and prospective applicants looking to develop new generic drug products.

To Register: A Deep Dive: GDUFA III Scientific Meetings - 05/15/2023 | FDA

The goals of these meetings are to:

  • clarify regulatory expectations for prospective applicants early in product development
  • assist applicants in developing more complete, quality submissions
  • promote a more efficient and effective ANDA assessment process
  • reduce the number of assessment cycles required to obtain ANDA approval
  • enhance communication
  • provide targeted, robust advice as applicants work to meet the standard for ANDA approval

This webinar will take an in-depth look into the following three types of scientific focused meetings offered under GDUFA III:

  • Pre-Submission Meetings
  • Post-Complete Response Letter (CRL) Scientific Meetings
  • Product-Specific Guidance (PSG) Teleconferences and Pre- and Post-submission PSG Meetings


  • Provide an in-depth look into the enhancements and new features of these meetings
  • Describe how and when to utilize these meetings to support generic drug development
  • Provide clarification and best practices in meeting request and conduct


This webinar is for members of the generic drug industry, including current and potential applicants who are interested in submitting an application for a generic drug, regulatory reviewers for generic drug development and assessments, consultants focused on bioequivalence, clinical research coordinators, and foreign regulators.
