What You Need to Know
OTC Drug Reform & the CARES Act (Monographs & OMUFA)

A Free FDAnews Webinar • Sponsored by Reed Tech
Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2020 • 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. EDT

Requirements around the OTC Monograph Reform, the Over-the-Counter Monograph User Fee Program (OMUFA), and the OTC Monograph Order Requests (OMORs) are about to become clearer. The FDA is expected to release additional guidance soon — and this FDAnews webinar can help you understand the next steps.

One particular change: With the passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act in March 2020, it is likely that all OTC drug manufacturers will need to pay a user fee, similar to those established under the Generic Drug User Fee (GDUFA) and Prescription Drug User Fee (PDUFA). The Act will also create new opportunities for innovation and help finalize the large number of pending monographs in many of the OTC drug therapeutic categories.

During this detailed conversation, medical device identification expert Gary Saner will speak with regulatory attorney Carolina M. Wirth about opportunities for growing your OTC portfolio and the complicated compliance issues that may arise during that effort. The pair will discuss OTC monograph reform, provide clarity on the industry’s current regulatory expectations and answer your questions about how these requirements may impact you.

We will cover:

  • The FDA’s OTC Monograph Reform, OMUFA, and OMOR
    1. Understanding OTC Monograph Order Requests
    2. The effect on existing OTC products
    3. The impact on private label distributors
    4. Examples of impacted products: hand sanitizers, sunscreens, topical analgesics, and CBD-infused products
  • OMUFA and the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act
    1. The consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic
    2. Required user fees for all OTC drug manufacturers, similar to the Generic Drug User Fee and the Prescription Drug User Fee
  • Suggested Best Practices
