Examples of shared experiences with orphan drugs, cough and cold medications, generic drugs and GMP inspections. We will also discuss how reviews are being shared among regulatory agencies, and whether decisions by one country can be made on another country's review. We will discuss Tier 1, 2, 3, and other regulatory agencies and how the approach to international reviews varies from agency to agency. We will discuss whether the European paradigm can be applied more broadly, and what the impact of ICH and CIOMS has to the international sharing of data.
