ACI - 3rd Annual Legal, Regulatory and Compliance Forum on Over the Counter Drugs

October 27-28, 2014 • New York, NY

Site: The Carlton Hotel
Address: 88 Madison Avenue, New York, NY

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that the OTC Drug Monograph System and OTC Drug Review Process will be overhauled to meet the current needs of OTC manufacturers. This will revolutionize the OTC drug industry and change the way that over the counter drugs and consumer healthcare products reach the shelves. Billions of dollars are at stake as the OTC drug industry anxiously awaits the FDA’s proposals and ponders how this will impact business practices and profits.

This conference addresses the needs of the OTC drug industry. Legal and regulatory experts in the OTC space will provide you with the critical information you now need to:     

  • Predict how the FDA will implement significant changes to the Monograph System, thereby changing how OTC drugs get approved
  • Extract the fine points of the NSURE Initiative and track the results of increasing access to nonprescription drugs
  • Overcome legal and regulatory hurdles associated with novel Rx-to-OTC switches
  • Reposition your company in light of the recent M&A activity among OTC drug companies

  • Comprehend the importance of patent strategies in the OTC space
  • Appreciate the unique challenges associated with the homeopathic pharmacopeia

  • Develop a global strategy for over the counter drugs
