Dictionary: Licensed manufacturers must submit a prior approval supplement to FDA for any change to a product that has a substantial impact to have an adverse effect on the identity, strength, quality, purity or potency of the product as they may relate to the safety or effectiveness of the product. Examples of such changes include production process, quality controls, equipment, facilities, or responsible personnel. FDA approval must be obtained prior to distribution of the product made with the change. This measure will allow OVRR to monitor its performance in issuing decisions for manufacturing supplements requiring prior approval within established timeframes.
