In August 2021, FDA revised the draft guidance for industry on Bioequivalence (BE) Studies with Pharmacokinetic Endpoints for Drugs Submitted Under an ANDA to update and clarify the agency’s recommendations regarding BE information submitted in an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) submission, provide assistance to potential ANDA applicants, and support access for patients to lower cost, high quality medicines.

This webinar will take a deeper look at the revised draft guidance, describe major changes from the previous draft guidance published in 2013, and provide clarification to comments received through the public docket. For example, we received questions on study population (with regard to sex and age), and bioequivalence assessment for additional strengths of modified-release products.


  • Provide an overview of the revised drug guidance
  • Describe the major changes in the revised draft guidance
  • Provide clarification and rationale on selected topics to address comments received
  • Understand how principles described in the revised draft guidance in conjunction with product-specific guidances and other pre-submission communications facilitate generic drug development and generic drug application assessment


  • Generic drug industry, including current and potential applicants who are interested in submitting an application for generic drugs
  • Regulatory reviewers and policy makers for generic drug development and assessments
