HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AI18 Publication ID: Spring 2020 
Title: Conditional Approval of New Animal Drugs 

FDA is issuing procedural regulations for conditional approval of new animal drugs under the conditional approval provisions of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. The new regulations are intended to make more medications legally available to veterinarians and animal owners. A sponsor can apply for conditional approval of a new animal drug based on certain criteria, which allows the sponsor to make the drug available before collecting all necessary effectiveness data, but after demonstrating the drug is safe in accordance with the full FDA approval standard and showing that there is a reasonable expectation of effectiveness. The drug sponsor can keep the product on the market for up to 5 years, through annual renewals, while collecting the remaining required effectiveness data.
