India’s Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) is soliciting input on a draft guidance that establishes a uniform format for filing requests for the approval of bioequivalence studies that are to be conducted in India on drugs intended for export.

The uniform formats cover study requests for:

  • a new molecule approved in another country but not India
  • drugs approved in India within the last year
  • drugs approved between one and four years ago
  • drugs in modified release form irrespective of their approval status
  • so-called "old drugs" approved in India for more than four years 

The deadline for comments is 25 January 2015.
