14 Other Impacts of GDUFA on OGD Program  Coordination of inspections with Office of Compliance  Complete response letter coordination  New review practices…reorganization of CMC reviewers?  Integrating New Drugs into the GDUFA program –Consults – labeling carve out, toxicology, etc. –Office of Chief Counsel and Office of Reg Policy 14

15 How Does OGD Get to Metrics?  Last twelve months –Average receipts of originals 92/month (1103) –Average approvals 43 AP/month (479)  Backlog at OGD is at 2933* ANDAs as of 9/30/2012 –To clear backlog at current rate – 2933/517 = 5.67years –If stream of ANDA continue at current pace (1000+/yr) and with the phase in of staffing over 3 years there will be great pressure to meet the 3-5 year metrics 15

16 User Fee Issues  New User Fees for FY 2013 (PDUFA) (BsUFA)** –Remember Fees for all (b)(2) applications* –Modestly higher fees Only 6.3% –New fees NDA with clinical data $1,958,803 NDA without clinical data $979,600 Establishment fees (+1.2%) $526,500 Product fees (actual decrease -0.6%) $98, * Small Business waiver for 1 st NDA still possible Also Orphan drugs exempt from fee **BPD fee 10% and reactivation fee 20% of PDUFA NDA

17 Generic Drug User Fee “Guesstimate”  GDUFA Fees (estimate based on $299 million) –US Establishment $ ,000 –X US Estab.$ ,000 –US API Estab.$ ,000 –X US API Estab.$ ,000 –Orig. ANDA$ 51,520 –PAS$ 25,760 –Orig. DMF$ 21,340 –ANDA Backlog Fee$ 17, *- FDA FR 6/14/12 notice withdrawing about 400 old ANDAs

18 Generics Success Represents Unprecedented Challenge  $931 Billion in savings ( ) has resulted in continued success and growth  While program funding has remained relatively flat…  Generics Industry success has come to represent an unprecedented Regulatory challenge in terms of.. –Size –Scope –Geography 18

19 was another historic high Continued Growth in ANDAs

20 20 Combined, ANDAs and DMFs are approximately 10 X Plus, the NDA volume Multiple references, often years after filing DMFs Also Rapidly Growing

21 21 Increases in FDF Foreign Inspections

23 23 GDUFA Addresses Those Challenges  $299M per year is less than ½ of 1% of Generic Drug sales And is expected to reduce costs considering the reduced development/regulatory timelines  GDUFA results in less than doubling in OGD over the life of the program Efficiency enhancement are a critical component of GDUFA  GDUFA is modest size despite 10 X plus the application volume of brands

24 24 GDUFA Goals Letter Overview

25 25 Goals Letter Overview  Scope, Assumptions, and Aspirations  Immediate Efficiency Enhancements  Metrics

26 26 Key Achievements The program advances critical values Timely access to generic drugs Certainty for industry and FDA Safe, high quality generic drugs Maintains affordability of generic drugs Increases Transparency Addresses Globalization Advances Regulatory Science

27 27 Next Steps  Congress Acted – President signed July 9, 2012  Implementation program – devil in the details  Hiring and training staff  FR Notices and Guidance
