The development, approval, manufacture, distribution and, not least, dispensation of medicines are shaped by a variety of regulations. The European Union and national legislators are constantly making their contribution to the growing volume of regulations with new developments. Safety and quality requirements are constantly increasing. This is not always an easy thing for those involved to deal with, especially with national and European supervisory authorities placing great emphasis on such regulations.
We see our task as bringing your interests, projects and plans into harmony with the legal framework conditions and highlighting and supporting you with the existing opportunities for the development, approval and distribution of your medicines.
Our consulting service focuses on the following areas:
- Classification and delimitation of products (foods, medicines, medical products, cosmetics)
- Research and development contracts
Approval / registration
