HP&M’s Karla Palmer to Speak at FDLI’s Drug Quality and Security in 2016 Conference

December 4, 2015

In November 2013, the Drug Quality and Security Act (“DQSA”) was signed into law in an effort to increase the quality of the United States drug supply. The law contains two separate acts: the Compounding Quality Act (Title I), and the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (Title II). As industry implements new requirements, questions on office use, traceability, serialization, preemption, and licensing persist.

On January 26, 2016, the Food and Drug Law Institute (“FDLI”) will hold a one-day conference in Washington, D.C., titled “Drug Quality and Security in 2016,” to discuss the ongoing implementation of both DQSA titles and recent FDA guidance. Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C.’s Karla L. Palmer will lead a breakout session on the DQSA’s Compounding Quality Act, during which she will review recently released guidance for compounders under FDC Act § 503A and § 503B and related topics (see our previous post here).
