Click here to see the Promotion Flyer


The Pharmaceuticals and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA) of Japan and the Food and Drug Administration of the United States (U.S. FDA) are pleased to announce the 4rd annual “PMDA-ATC & U.S. FDA Pediatric Review Webinar 2021.” For 2021, this seminar will be held virtually using Cisco’s WebEx program. This will allow officials from overseas regulatory authorities who are engaged in the review of pharmaceuticals, especially in the field of pediatrics, to join from their own countries.

The webinar will cover topics relating to the current pediatric guidelines and practices in Japan and the United States through self-learning lecture videos, Live Lecture and Question & Answer (Q&A) sessions, and case studies consisting of small group discussions among participants.

The aim of the webinar is to provide opportunities for participants to take a fresh look at their own programs and to gather additional information that may enhance the review of pediatric drug development programs within their own regulatory frameworks.

 The webinar is not open to industry or non-regulatory authorities.  Participation from most regulatory authorities are welcome.

Key Webinar Objectives

  1. To learn the scientific, ethical and regulatory considerations when evaluating drug products being developed for the pediatric population.
  2. To learn the global standard guidelines relating to the review of drug products being developed for the pediatric population.
  3. To learn the current practice and issues in the review of drug products being developed for the pediatric population when data are collected in adults and the pediatric population of other races.

Who should apply

  • Attendees who have access to Cisco’s WebEx program and are committed to participating in both the preliminary and LIVE sessions. LIVE sessions will begin on September 21, 2021 at 8 P.M. Japan Standard Time (JST)... See attached for system requirements.
  • Employees of regulatory authorities with working experience of pharmaceuticals review, particularly in the pediatric field for over 3 years.

Other Points to Note

  • The training will be provided in English (with English-Japanease consecutive translation in some sessions).
  • All participants are requested to do self-leaning before the LIVE sessions and actively participate in all LIVE sessions.
