Contract template sketch
About this template
This legal template is specifically designed to address Hatch-Waxman Act-related document requests between an Abbreviated New Drug Application (ANDA) filer and a patent owner. The Hatch-Waxman Act, officially known as the Drug Price Competition and Patent Term Restoration Act, governs the process of generic drugs gaining approval and entering the market while respecting patent rights.

In the context of this template, it outlines a formal procedure for the ANDA filer (the company seeking to market a generic version of a patented drug) to request specific documents from the patent owner. These documents are usually related to patents that are potentially infringed upon by the generic drug.

The purpose of this legal template is to establish a framework for the exchange of information during the patent infringement investigation. It ensures that the ANDA filer can access relevant documents from the patent owner to validate or challenge the patent's validity. Depending on the situation, the template may include requests for patent-related documentation, claim charts, and other pertinent materials.

By using this template, the ANDA filer can effectively request necessary information to navigate the complex regulatory requirements associated with generic drug approval. It also helps the patent owner comply with their obligations under the Hatch-Waxman Act by providing requested documents within the specified timeframe.

Ultimately, this legal template aims to facilitate a structured and fair process where both parties involved in the Hatch-Waxman litigation can exchange relevant information related to the patents in question.
