“The Trump Administration wants to start a drug-importation program from Canada for both small-molecule and biologic products. The program would be a “time-limited Section 804 importation program” (SIP), with the SIP program sponsored by “a pharmacist, a wholesaler, or another State or non-federal governmental entity” and subject to FDA review. Additional language in the notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) gives guidance on how manufacturers themselves could set up reimportation. The NPRM is available in draft form today (Dec. 18), and is expected to be published officially in the Federal Register on Dec. 23.”
