OTC Drug Safety, Innovation, and Reform Act
 
Q: How will the Over-the-counter (OTC) Drug Safety, Innovation, and Reform Act of 2018 change the regulation of OTC drugs?
 
 
imageThe pharmaceutical industry and regulators have long known that the regulation of OTC drugs needs serious reform. The FDA implemented the current monograph system for reviewing the safety and efficacy of OTC active ingredients in 1972. The system was reasonable at the time, but over the years it has evolved into a slow and cumbersome process that's unable to keep pace with current technology and science. This situation isn't acceptable for an industry that provides more than 60 percent of the medications sold in the US.

How to select a contract packaging partner
 
 
 
Better supply chain management has enabled some pharmaceutical companies to cut costs by 25 to 50 percent. Outsourcing packaging to a contract packaging organization (CPO), for example, transfers non-core packaging activities to a specialist and spares the pharmaceutical company capital outlays.
 
CPOs have capacity and capabilities not available in-house to most pharmaceutical companies. This includes readily-accessible floor space, equipment, processes, specialized workrooms (such as low-humidity primary packaging suites), and a workforce trained to handle a variety of packaging requirements.
 
For more information on this topic, you can read the article "Back Page: How to select a contract packaging partner," by Scott Garverick, Pharma Packaging Solutions. You can also find articles listed under "Outsourcing" and "Packaging" in Tablets & Capsules' Article Archive.
