Regulatory experts partnering with you
Stay current on country, regional and global regulatory changes with ICON’s monthly Regulatory Intelligence Newsletter.
The European Union’s new Medical Device Regulation (MDR) will go into effect in May, 2021, and In Vitro Diagnostic Device Regulation (IVDR) in 2022.
Designed primarily to meet regulatory requirements for therapies targeting large patient populations, the existing development model lacks the flexibility, analytical power and efficiency to address today’s development demands. It is essential to develop a regulatory strategy plan early in drug development to identify key challenges that may arise, and interact collaboratively with regulatory authorities. This will also enable you to ensure that plan aligns with the profile and commercialisation for drug development.
Governments worldwide are swiftly intervening to create alliances with pharma, biotech, diagnostics and medical device manufactureres to address the COVID-19 threat. International regulatory agencies are considering accelerated approvals, including Emergency Use Authorisations.
