Theresa M. Michele, M.D., Director, Division of Nonprescription Drug Products, Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER), FDA
On Friday, March 27, 2020, the President signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) to aid response efforts and ease the economic impact of COVID-19. In addition to the COVID-19 response efforts, the CARES Act includes statutory provisions that reform and modernize the way OTC monograph drugs are regulated in the United States. Specifically, the CARES Act replaces the rulemaking process with an administrative order process for issuing, revising, and amending OTC monographs. The CARES Act also provides FDA the authority to assess and collect user fees dedicated to OTC monograph drug activities. This presentation will provide a high level overview of OTC monograph reform provisions under the CARES Act.
