The recently passed CARES Act includes an important section that significantly reforms the regulatory framework for OTC drugs and makes important changes to how FDA regulates drugs marketed under an OTC Monograph. It is likely to yield greater OTC access to drug ingredients with strong safety profiles. It also allows for changes to be implemented by administrative orders instead of the current cumbersome notice and comment rule-making process – a major change that should speed up the drug review process. It also provides the incentive of 18-month market exclusivity and establishes user fee requirements.
