Our long-standing experience and detailed knowledge of the various procedures and the respective regulatory requirements enable us to provide you with specialist advice.


REGULATORY STRATEGIES

For the preparation of an application, we develop regulatory strategies for submission, type of application and selection of possible target countries, taking into account:

  • Existing documentation and possible gaps
  • Available literature and studies
  • Review of data protection periods
  • Orphan drug indications
  • Possible effects on existing marketing authorisations (RUP, MRP)
  • Review of the type of application

GAP ANALYSIS

We are happy to take over review of your documents, reports and dossiers, in line with your current requirements and the planned intended use, as well as any applicable Guidelines and Directives. These reviews may include the following:

  • Analysis of possible gaps with regard to regulatory activities, e.g. assessment of marketing authorisation dossiers within the scope of planned repeat use procedures, new submissions or in the scope of in-licensing of marketing authorisations
  • Review of the consistency of marketing authorisation and manufacturing documents (regulatory compliance)
  • Review of the validity of the product information texts
  • Compilation of a detailed list of deficiencies, including assessment of the risks
  • Preparation of an action plan for the correction and/or improvement of the dossier
