FALLS CHURCH, Va., Nov. 14, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- REMS: Requirements, Regulation, and Enforcement: Evolution from

Safety Program to Enforcement Tool **An FDAnews Webinar** Nov. 28, 20181:30 p.m.3:00 p.m. ET http://www.fdanews.com/remsrre

REMS is no longer just a safety requirement. It's now a powerful enforcement tool. A constantly evolving enforcement tool.

In September the FDA added immediate-release opioids to its REMS for opioid analgesics, saying the move will encourage "rational prescribing."

Drug manufacturers need to be prepared for the FDA to add other similar safety requirements in the future.

FDAnews has called on Anne K. Walsh, a Washington, D.C., attorney to discuss why the REMS evolution has occurred and how to prepare for future changes. Her presentation alerts attendees to likely regulatory and legislative changes ahead in coming months, and positions manufacturers for better compliance. Attendees will learn about:

  • The recently changed requirements evolving REMS from a safety initiative to a powerful enforcement tool
  • How to protect from enforcement actions and strategies for defending an enforcement
  • The most successful strategies to defend against a False Claims Act case based on compliance with safety requirements
  • Recent settlements and what they mean
  • Novo Nordisk — resulted in disgorgement of $12 million, and payment of $46.5 million to resolve False Claims Act liability
  • Aegerion — contained both criminal and civil components and resulted in the company agreeing to pay $7.2 million in criminal fines and forfeiture
  • How to prevent a Deferred Prosecution Agreement with the government to resolve charges of conspiracy to violate HIPAA

Failure to prepare for REMS changes could result in penalties: civil, and even criminal ones. Don't take that risk.

Meet the Presenter: Anne K. Walsh, Director, Hyman, Phelps & McNamara, P.C., Washington, DC

Anne K. Walsh counsels clients on compliance and enforcement issues, including FDA inspections, seizure and injunction actions, warning letters, and recalls.
