ANDA Review Enhancements

GDUFA II includes a number of elements to enhance communication between FDA and industry throughout the ANDA review process, thereby improving predictability and transparency and promoting the efficiency and effectiveness of the review process.  Among other provisions, the GDUFA II framework provides for earlier determinations regarding the receipt of ANDAs, enhancements to the process for information requests (IRs), use of discipline review letters (DRLs), timing for notification of communication of review classifications, and establishment of a dispute resolution process.  The GDUFA II commitment letter provides additional information about the ANDA review enhancements.

As part of the GDUFA II commitments, FDA issued a manual of policies and procedures (MAPP) on Communicating Certain Deficiencies Identified During Filing Review of ANDAs.

The following videos explain important elements in GDUFA II regarding ANDA reviews.
