Small Biotech and Pharma companies are typically resource constrained and can understandably focus on commercial potential and clinical results. Regulatory Affairs and regulatory strategy in particular may not be considered a necessary core competence and something that can be readily be outsourced when the time comes. However, if appropriately crafted Regulatory strategy is the one place to align all strands of activity for a development asset and be fully in step with Company aspirations.

In this session we discuss why outsourcing your regulatory strategy may not be wise move. Here we propose that a smarter move would be to engage a Trusted Regulatory Adviser.

We will cover these areas:
  • Why your regulatory strategy should be integral to your company strategy
  • The benefits of a global approach to avoid development plan delays
  • Why you should outsource your Regulatory Strategy with caution
  • The significant value a Trusted Regulatory Adviser can bring.
