DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The “Pharmaceutical Regulatory Affairs in Asia Training Course” conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.
The pharmaceutical market in Asia is growing at a rapid pace and presents both opportunities and challenges to those wishing to work in the region. Rather than a single market, Asia is a collection of different markets, each with their own regulatory processes, although harmonisation exists within the ASEAN countries.
This seminar will provide a practical overview of the key areas of pharmaceutical regulatory affairs in Asia, including India, and will cover all important aspects of gaining and maintaining a successful marketing authorisation within the region.
The programme will include:
- Discussion of underlying official regulatory sources
- An interpretation of practical aspects
- An overview of the requirements for local manufacturing
- Recent developments
- Harmonisation initiatives
- An update and wider knowledge of regulatory affairs in Asia
- The opportunity to exchange experiences with other delegates
