What are FDA's Plans Concerning New (GMP) Guidelines for 2019? The CDER give answers

What are FDA's plans concerning new guidelines for calendar year 2019? The Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) has provided an answer to that question in its list of planned guidelines and/or guidelines to be revised. These documents are presented over five pages, divided into 15 individual categories. These categories partly cover very specific topics, from biosimilars to rare diseases.

Regarding GMP, planned and/or revised guidelines can be found under various sections, e.g. under the categories "Pharmaceutical Quality/Microbiology" and the "CMC" part of the approval. Below, you will find some of the planned/to be revised guidelines with a direct or indirect connection to GMP:
