24:6A-1. New drugs; introduction into interstate commerce; application; effective date of application; refusal of application; application of chapter
a. No person shall introduce or deliver for introduction into intrastate commerce in the State of New Jersey any new drug unless (1) an application with respect thereto has become effective under the Federal Act, or (2) an application filed pursuant to subsection b is effective with respect to such drug.

b. Any person may file with the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey an application with respect to any new drug subject to the provisions of subsection a. Such person shall submit to the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey as a part of the application (1) full reports of investigations which have been made to show whether or not such drug is safe for use; (2) a full list of the articles used as components of such drug; (3) a full statement of the composition of such drug; (4) a full description of the methods used in, and the facilities and controls used for, the manufacture, processing and packing of such drug; (5) such samples of such drug and of the articles used as components thereof as the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey may require; and (6) specimens of the labeling proposed to be used for such drug.

c. The application provided for in subsection b shall become effective on the sixtieth day after the filing thereof unless prior to such day the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey by notice to the applicant in writing postpones the effective date of the application to such time (not more than one hundred eighty days after the filing thereof) as the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey deems necessary to enable it to study and investigate the application.

d. If the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey finds, after due notice to the applicant and giving him an opportunity for a hearing that (1) the investigations, reports of which are required to be submitted to the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey pursuant to subsection b, do not include adequate tests by all methods reasonably applicable to show whether or not such drug is safe for use under the conditions prescribed, recommended, or suggested in the proposed labeling thereof; (2) the results of such tests show that such drug is unsafe for use under such conditions or do not show that such drug is safe for use under such conditions; (3) the methods used in, and the facilities and controls used for, the manufacture, processing, and packing of such drug, are inadequate to preserve its identity, strength, quality, and purity; or (4) upon the basis of the information submitted to the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey as part of the application, or upon the basis of any other information before the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey with respect to such drug, the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey has insufficient information to determine whether such drug is safe for use under such conditions, the Department of Health of the State of New Jersey may, prior to the effective date of the application, issue an order refusing to permit the application to become effective.

e. This chapter shall not apply

(1) to a drug intended solely for investigational use by experts qualified by scientific training and experience to investigate the safety of drugs provided the drug is plainly labeled "For investigational use only" ; or

(2) to a drug sold in this State at any time prior to the enactment of this subtitle or introduced into interstate commerce at any time prior to the enactment of the Federal Act; or
