    • Content • Introduction • Guidance of Implementation • Quality Document- Documentation • Examples • References 3Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Introduction These Post NOC changes can happen for the following reasons - To improve the quality of the drug. - To improve the efficiency of manufacturing process. - To solve the marketing issues. - Changes in labeling of the drug for “warning” or managing the “risk factors” or limiting the “targeted population” or limiting the “dosage”. These drugs may include pharmaceuticals, biologics, and radiopharmaceuticals for human use and pharmaceutical, radiopharmaceutical and certain biotechnological products for veterinary use 4Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Introduction Policy Statement Health Canada recognizes that: - any change to a drug may impact the safety, efficacy and quality of that drug and; - any change to the information associated with the drug (for example [e.g.], labeling)may impact the safe and effective use of that drug. To manage the safety and risks of the public in using the drugs and foods, there are certain rules and regulations administered by “Health Canada”. One important area of these regulations are administrative rules managing the “Post Notice of Compliance” ( Post NOC )related to a drug. A post-NOC change is any change that is made to a new drug that has received a NOC pursuant to section C.08.004 of the Food and Drug Regulations. 5Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Introduction “Post NOC” changes applies - When a drug has already been granted a “ NOC” ( Notice of Compliance) - When a drug is recommended for NOC ( Notice Of Compliance ) but this notice is on hold. These drugs may include pharmaceuticals, biologics, and radiopharmaceuticals for human use and pharmaceutical, radiopharmaceutical and certain biotechnological products for veterinary use 6Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Introduction Objectives and Goals of these regulations - providing a frame to define what is meant by significantly different as it relates to preventing the sales of the drug to the public (Section C.08.003 ). - providing sponsors with recommendations on the data required to enable Health Canada to make an accurate determination of the impact of a change on the safety, efficacy and quality of the new drug. 7Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Introduction Level of changes to a drug and subsequent obligations of the sponsor are as followings Levels - Supplements. (Data should be submitted to Health Canada for review prior to implementation. ) - Notifiable Changes. (Data should be submitted to Health Canada for review prior to implementation.) - Annual Notifications. (Data should not be submitted but should be available to health Canada upon request ) - Record Of Changes.(Data should be retained by sponsor ) 8Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Introduction As of the effective date, the Post-NOC Changes guidance documents will supersede the following guidance and policies a) New Drug: Sufficient Time policy (1991) b) Extension of Expiration Dates (1991) c) Changes to Marketed New Drug Products policy (1994) d) Stability Requirements for Changes to Marketed New Drugs (1994) e) Changes in Product-Specific Facility Information (revised in 2004) f) New Drug: Sufficient Time notice (2005) g) Draft Guidance for Industry: Changes in Product Colours or Markings (2005) 9Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Frame-work Document This Framework document and the associated Post-NOC Changes guidances came into effect on 30th September 2009. Health Canada recognizes that changes allowed under the New Drug: Sufficient Time policy (1991) were not required to be reported. Therefore sponsors are reminded that changes previously implemented under the New Drug: Sufficient Time policy need not be reported at this time. All changes from the effective date of the Post-NOC Changes guidances are expected to be reported as per the procedures detailed within. 10Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Guidance for implementation Reporting Categories Level I – Supplements These changes to a new drug are “significantly different” as it relates to the matters specified in C.08.003 (2) of the Food and Drug Regulations and have the potential to impact the safety, efficacy, quality and/or effective use of the drug. The changes included in this reporting category shall be filed, along with the recommended supporting data, to Health Canada as a Supplemental New Drug Submission (SNDS) or Supplemental Abbreviated New Drug Submission (SANDS). The change may not be implemented by the sponsor until a NOC has been issued! 11Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Guidance for implementation Reporting Categories Level II - Notifiable Changes These changes to a new drug have the potential to impact the safety, efficacy, quality and/or effective use of the drug but do not require the issuance of a NOC. (NOTE: All Level II - Notifiable Changes (Quality) referred to in this document are not applicable to Human Pharmaceuticals) The changes included in this reporting category should be filed, along with the recommended supporting data, to Health Canada as a Notifiable Change. All Level II changes should not be implemented by the sponsor until a No Objection Letter (NOL) has been issued! 12Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Guidance for implementation Reporting Categories Level III - Annual Notifications These changes to a new drug have minimal potential to impact the safety, efficacy, quality and/or effective use of the drug. The changes included in this reporting category may be implemented by the sponsor without the prior review by Health Canada of the data supporting such a change. These changes should be annotated in the affected documents when filing the next submission to Health Canada to indicate those Level III changes that have been implemented. The recommended supporting data should not be submitted but should be available to Health Canada within thirty (30) calendar days if requested at any time! 13Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
    • Guidance for implementation Reporting Categories Level IV - Record of Changes (Quality only) These changes to a new drug are not Level I, Level II or Level III and are not expected to impact the safety, efficacy, quality and/or effective use of the drug. The changes included in this reporting category may be implemented by the sponsor without prior review by Health Canada. The changes should be retained as part of the drug product’s record by either the sponsor or the manufacturer and comply with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) requirements of Division 2 of the Food and Drug Regulations! 14Professional Regulatory Affairs, Course Code: PRA 1008/1009, Sept. 2012 Academy of Applied Pharmaceutical Sciences, Toronto, Canada
