GADA MID-YEAR & GADA | CVM MEETING: APRIL 2020 - VIRTUAL FORMAT

Dear GADA Members:

Due to the public health and safety concerns raised by the COVOID-19, to include appropriately addressing current and potential travel restrictions affecting GADA members, GADA has made the considered decision to offer its April 29, 2020 Mid-Year meeting AND the April 30, 2020 GADA meeting with CVM entirely virtually.

There will be no in person attendance at these two meetings.

In the coming days, GADA will publish agendas and participation details for both the mid-year meeting and the meeting with CVM (agenda under development, and most likely will be published in early April), as well as registration links so virtual attendance for both the April 29th and April 30th meetings can be tracked.

Should you have questions or concerns, please contact GADA's Executive Director, John Dixon, and JDixon@gadaonline.org.
Febraury 7, 2020
In November 2019 the FDA's Center for Veterinary Medicine (CVM) issued draft guidance #256 on compounding veterinary drugs from bulk pharmaceutical ingredients. This guidance is intended to define when certain pharmacy compounding practices are acceptable, and when they cross the line into illegal pharmaceutical manufacturing. It is critical that the legitimate generic pharmaceutical industry communicate our support of this guidance to representatives for our member-presence states and committee members who represent our interests.

GADA's Legislative Action Subgroup has worked with its legal counsel and the Legislative and Public Affairs representatives at the Animal Health Institute (AHI) to draft some documents that can help with our outreach activities both from a company directed standpoint and an industry association platform.

In the effort to keep GADA members and other stakeholders informed, we provide three documents for the public's information.
