The Hatch-Waxman Act is one of the most important regulators of competition between brand and generic pharmaceutical companies. Because of its provisions, the pharma industry has continuously achieved balance when it comes to patent protection and entry of a new drug. By requiring the abbreviated new drug application (ANDA) process, Hatch-Waxman regulates the approval of a "bioequivalent" generic drug while protecting the patent rights of an existing brand drug.
Because of its significant impact on both brand and generic drug companies, it is imperative for the pharma industry to keep abreast of the latest developments in Hatch-Waxman Act: amendments, as well as potential changes in the year ahead.
