Registration of Veterinary Vaccines in the USA and Canada

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.

Course Overview

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 three 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 intensive one-day course will explain the licensing process for vaccines with USDA and CFIA, and will provide comprehensive insight into the requirements to achieve a successful application.

The programme will address the transferability of EU dossiers for USDA submission, which will be beneficial in planning your regulatory strategy.

Benefits of attending:

  • Gain a comprehensive insight into the difference of approach to licensing in the USDA/CFIA vs EU
  • Understand the phased-submission process for vaccine licensing
  • Learn the format and content specifications for the required dossier components
  • Review the USDA regulations (9 CFR) and guidance – memoranda, notices, supplemental information formats (SIFs), supplemental assay methods (SAMs)
  • Compare the regulatory fee structures for the USA and Canada
  • Discuss the transferability of EU dossiers for USDA submission
