About this course
The ever-increasing complexity of obtaining approval for drug products requires that companies provide high quality registration applications. To achieve this objective, it is essential that personnel in Regulatory Affairs, Research & Development, Manufacturing and Quality Assurance understand regulatory requirements and work together as an effective team.
The ICH Common Technical Document (CTD) has brought the possibility of a global dossier many steps closer. This emphasises the importance of getting it right first time.
NSF-DBA and Regulatory Resources Group have once again combined their complementary skills to present this well proven and successful pharmaceutical training course which is designed to provide attendees with a clear understanding of the regulatory process and technical data requirements for registration and subsequent manufacture of medicinal products.
Although this pharmaceutical training course will primarily focus on EU aspects, consideration will be given to corresponding aspects in US submissions.
