Formal Meetings for CBER-Regulated Products

Meetings with industry and sponsor-investigators are a forum for the Agency to provide guidance to representatives of the regulated industry (including sponsors/applicants of user fee-related products) and/or individual sponsor-investigators during product development and facility design, and to facilitate their compliance with the regulations governing development and post-approval marketing of products.

Formal meetings can be conducted face-to-face, in-person and/or virtually, or via teleconference. Written Response Only (WRO) can be sent in lieu of holding a meeting. Please see Update on In-Person Face-to-Face Formal Meetings with FDA for the latest on the return to face-to-face in-person meetings at FDA. The conduct of the meetings and any additional information can be found in the following documents below:
