NEW DATE - CDER SBIA Webinar on FDA’s Proprietary Name Review

FDA Division of Drug Information: Know the Moment It Happens

The Division of Drug Information (DDI) is CDER's focal point for public inquiries. We serve the public by providing information on human drug products and drug product regulation by FDA.

On Tuesday July 15, 2014 at 11:00 am EDT, CDER Small Business and Industry Assistance (CDER SBIA) will host a webinar entitled Overview of FDA’s Proprietary Name Review Process.”


FDA published a notice in the Federal Register announcing the availability of the draft Guidance for Industry - Best Practices in Developing Proprietary Names for Drugs. The draft guidance provides a qualitative systematic framework for evaluating proprietary names before submitting them for FDA review. FDA is issuing this guidance to help sponsors of drug and biological products develop proprietary names that are not potentially misleading and do not cause or contribute to medication errors.

This webinar is to provide an overview of the Proprietary Name Review guidance that focuses on the safety aspects in the development and selection of proposed proprietary names for all prescription and nonprescription drug products and biological products.
