We are pleased to announce a two day event ‘Applying for a Marketing Authorisation in the UK’ focused on the content of an MA submission, how experts identify an ‘ideal’ data package and how this can reduce deficiencies during assessment, and help ‘Get it right first time’.

This CPD-accredited event will provide helpful advice for all regulatory affairs staff preparing marketing authorisation applications.  Gain a clear understanding of how to minimise deficiencies when preparing new MA applications as well as the regulatory fundamentals of drug/device combinations, regulatory fundamentals of bioequivalence and learn which points to consider when submitting a WEU application.
