Generic Drug Manufacturer | Hire a Generic Pharmaceutical CDMO to Develop Generic Pharmaceuticals & Drugs

What is the production process of a generic pharma manufacturer?

Before generic pharmaceutical companies can begin formulating and manufacturing the bioequivalent of brand-name drugs, a few things must first take place. When a pharmaceutical company develops a new drug, a protective patent allows this company to sell this drug for a specific amount of time. If this company is based in the United States, these patents last for 17 years. Once this patent expires, a generic drug manufacturer can file an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) with the FDA to begin the process of developing and formulating the bioequivalent of a brand-name pharmaceutical. Upon meeting the necessary formulation requirements and facility standards, these generic pharmaceutical companies can start manufacturing.

The production process for generic pharmaceuticals depends on the specific drug being manufactured. When UPM partners with a client as a generic pharmaceutical CDMO, we strive to mirror their organization to ensure a clear, mutual understanding of all development, manufacturing, quality and regulatory considerations.
