What is a combination product? What are some examples of combination products? How are combination products assigned for review? Where can I find guidance for how master files can be used in the submission of information relevant to my combination product? Determine which Center will review my combination or non-combination product?

These topics and more will be addressed during this Webinar, including recently FDA's proposed rule to codify the current good manufacturing practice (cGMP) requirements applicable to combination products. This proposed rule is intended to promote the public health by clarifying which cGMP requirements apply when drugs, devices, and biological products are combined to create a combination product. In addition, the proposed rule sets forth a transparent and streamlined regulatory framework for firms to use when demonstrating compliance with cGMP requirements for "single-entity" and "co-packaged" combination products. FDA proposes to create 21 CFR Part 4, subpart A, to codify the cGMP requirements that apply to combination products. What current good manufacturing practice requirements apply to my combination product? The proposed rule seeks to clarify which cGMP requirements apply when drugs, devices, and biological products are used to create combination products. The agency notes that there are no express preemption provisions of the act applicable to prescription drugs or biological products.
