Time and Extent Applications for Nonprescription Drug Products (OTC) Guidance Introduced

According to FDA, “This guidance is intended to explain what information an applicant should submit to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to request that a drug product be included in the over-the-counter (OTC) drug monograph system and to describe the process for submitting that  information.

FDA regulations set forth criteria and procedures by which OTC drugs that initially were marketed in the United States after the OTC drug review began in 1972 and OTC drugs without any U.S. marketing experience can be considered for inclusion in the OTC drug monograph system (21 CFR 330.14).”  Contact PDG to learn more about how this may affect your introduction of OTCs into the market given the latest Guidance on unapproved drugs.
