DMF Compilation & Submissions
The Drug Master File (DMF) is a document submitted to regulatory authorities by pharmaceutical companies to provide confidential, detailed information about a specific aspect of a drug substance, drug substance intermediate, or excipient that is used in the manufacturing of a drug product. The information contained in a DMF is considered confidential and is protected under regulations in the US and EU.
A DMF compilation is the process of collecting and organizing the information that is required to be included in the DMF. This information includes details such as the chemical and physical properties of the drug substance, manufacturing processes, quality control procedures, and stability data.
DMF submission is the process of submitting the completed DMF document to the relevant regulatory authority for review and approval. The purpose of the submission is to provide information about the drug substance to support the approval of a drug product that contains it. The submission process may include additional rounds of review and communication with the regulatory authority, as well as the provision of additional information or clarification as needed.
