Animal Health Regulatory 101 Workshop

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's Center for Veterinary Medicine, or FDA/CVM, is responsible for the approval of veterinary drug products intended for both family pets and food-producing animals. However, FDA does not regulate all products intended for animal use. Jurisdiction over animal products — including licensed biologics, such as vaccines — is by the USDA/CVB. This makes navigating the regulatory space a bit confusing for people new to the industry or who have worked in the area of human drug development. This workshop on veterinary medicine regulations will provide attendees with an understanding of veterinary drug and vaccine approval processes.
