Integrated Manufacturing Assessment for A/NDAs

Ying Zhang, Ph.D. (FDA)

The Office of Pharmaceutical Quality (OPQ) integrates assessment, inspection, surveillance, policy, and research activities to strengthen pharmaceutical quality on a global scale. As a sub-office within OPQ, Office of Process and Facilities (OPF) assesses the drug product manufacturing process and the manufacturing facilities, leading to a single, more informed quality assessment. This presentation will describe the OPF’s responsibilities during the application review and our current review practice and will discuss the common deficiencies we have observed, with the eventual goal of facilitating the first cycle approval. Case studies will be provided.
