Introduction to Generics

Global Regulatory affairs for the generics pharmaceutical industry has evolved over the past few decades and is experiencing an increasing demand from emerging, as well as key countries like the US, Europe, and Canada, given the lower prices offered by the generic drug manufacturers. However, there still exist a few untapped markets for the generics industry and therefore, different Regulatory authorities like the US FDA, Health Canada, and the EMA/MHRA are supporting the generic drug manufacturers to explore various opportunities related to generic drug dossier submission and generic drug registration to overcome the existing challenges during generic drug development.

Drug Approval Process in the EU and US

The development of innovator drug products involves a huge investment of money and time unlike generics, which are cost-effective and require less time to bring drug products to the market. The innovator drug manufacturers are required to submit the Investigational New Drug application (IND) in the USA, (IMPD application in Europe) and New drugs application in the USA (MAA in Europe) after the successful completion of clinical trials. Similarly, generics drug manufacturers are required to submit the Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) in the USA and Marketing Authorization Application (MAA) in Europe post the completion of Bioequivalence studies.
