UBC Expertly Manages Shared System REMS as the Project Management Organization (PMO)

To avoid marketplace confusion of different REMS for referenced listed products and generics, the FDA may require Sponsors to establish a REMS consortium to work together to establish a single shared system REMS that includes multiple prescription drug products and is implemented jointly by two or more applicants. However, companies traditionally have different processes, procedures, and opinions. Therefore, achieving agreement on all topics may need to be brokered, and it is important to ensure responsiveness from all Sponsors.

UBC as the PMO provides efficiency, experience, and security.
