This course will cover some of the most complex yet fundamental aspects of veterinary vaccines licensing by USDA and CFIA including the phased submission process as well as the format and content specifications for the required dossier components.

Understand the licensing of veterinary vaccines by USDA and CFIA

Veterinary biological products, including vaccines, are regulated independently of veterinary pharmaceuticals and topical insecticides/pesticides in Canada and the USA. Three different Acts, with associated Regulations, and Guidance, govern the 3 different product categories, with the result that regulation is quite dissimilar. The requirements for licensing of vaccines with USDA and CFIA are also significantly different from those for licensing of vaccines in the individual EU member states, or centrally in the EU. This seminar will explain the licensing process for vaccines with USDA and CFIA, and will provide comprehensive insight into the requirements to achieve a successful application.

Benefits in attending:

  • Understand the phased-submission process for vaccinelicensing
  • Learn the format and content specifications for the required dossier components
  • Review the USDA regulations (9 CFR) and guidance (memoranda, notices, supplemental information formats (SIF), supplemental assay methods (SAM)
  • Compare the regulatory fee structures (no fees for USDA-licensing, minimal fees for Canadian licensing of biologics)
