Regulatory affairs is a comparatively new profession which developed from the desire of governments to protect public health by controlling the safety and efficacy of products in areas including pharmaceuticals, veterinary medicines, medical devices, pesticides, agrochemicals, cosmetics and complementary medicines. Regulatory Affairs is involved in the development of new medicinal products from early on, by integrating regulatory principles and by preparing and submitting the relevant regulatory dossiers to health authorities.

Regulatory Affairs is actively involved in every stage of development of a new medicine and in the post-marketing activities with authorized medicinal products. The Regulatory Affairs department is an important part of the organizational structure of pharmaceutical industry. Internally it liaises at the interphase of drug development, manufacturing, marketing and clinical research. Externally it is the key interface between the company and the regulatory authorities.

A regulatory strategy is a formal document that aligns the regulatory activities to bring a new or modified product to market with the business strategy for that product. It provides overall definition and direction to the project team for the product being developed by identifying the important regulatory elements to be addressed to market the device. Within a company, there are usually many players from a variety of departments who work on developing the regulatory strategy. Since this strategy involves all aspects of a drug, individuals with expertise in chemical synthesis, toxicology, biology, clinical and regulatory affairs, marketing, government affairs, and reimbursement should all provide input into the regulatory strategy to ensure it is as comprehensive as possible.

The regulatory strategy document has three main purposes. It needs to be:

  • A tracking tool to summarize key agreements reached with health authorities
  • A planning tool that documents timelines and lists topics to address in future meetings with health authorities
  • A risk register to record key issues that could impact timelines, costs or commercial value for the project

Non-compliance costs are costs which result from a failure to comply with regulation. These costs are not considered to be part of the regulatory burden for the purposes of the RBM. This includes penalties and associated activities that are required to be undertaken as a result of non-compliance with a regulation. Regulatory impacts that arise, up to the point that action is taken to respond to the suspicion of a specific instance of non-compliance, are included in the RBM framework. This includes risk based frameworks that may target certain populations without a specific instance of suspicion. “FCPIAA defines a CMP as any penalty, fine, or other sanction that is for a specific monetary amount as provided by Federal law; or has a maximum amount provided for by Federal law; and is assessed or enforced by an agency pursuant to Federal law; and is assessed or enforced pursuant to an administrative proceeding or a civil action in the Federal Courts”. Failure to comply with the law can lead to enforcement action including one or more of the following: on-the-spot fines, prosecution, which carries a maximum fine of $12,110, disciplinary action, ranging from fines to cancellation of the license.

biopharmaceutical, otherwise called a biologic therapeutic item or biologic, is any restorative item made in, extricated from, or semi orchestrated from organic sources. Not quite the same as synthetically incorporated pharmaceuticals, they incorporate immunizations, blood, or blood segments, allergenic, substantial cells, quality treatments, tissues, recombinant restorative protein, and living cells utilized as a part of cell treatment. Biologics can be made out of sugars, proteins, or nucleic acids or complex mixes of these substances, or might live cells or tissues. They are confined from normal sources—human, creature, or microorganism. Phrasing encompassing biopharmaceuticals fluctuates amongst gatherings and elements, with various terms alluding to various subsets of therapeutics inside the general biopharmaceutical class. Some administrative offices utilize the terms natural restorative items or remedial organic item to allude particularly to designed macromolecular items like protein-and nucleic acid–based drugs, recognizing them from items like blood, blood segments, or antibodies, which are typically extricated specifically from a natural source Gene-based and cell biologics, for instance, frequently are at the front line of biomedical research, and might be utilized to treat an assortment of therapeutic conditions for which no different medications are accessible.

Ever-proliferating and changing global regulations generate complex challenges of execution in global market clearance operations.

Mission-critical decisions are delayed, trapping new international revenue until market clearance process issues are resolved. Workflow is confounded as information conflicts from sales-focused distributors, newly-appointed foreign regulators, and legacy resources are reconciled- and as definitive answers are sought. Governance is compromised as information gaps reduce assurance levels and impair risk management of clearance-related penalties, fines, and legal costs.

And the high level of business performance required to create value from ongoing medtech industry consolidation is not achievable, since global market clearance operations are incapable of rapidly completing new market clearance submissions for newly-acquired product lines.

Unlike repackaged RI databases designed for the pharmaceutical industry, the clinivation Worldview Enterprise Solution for On-Demand Global Regulatory Intelligence accelerates the market clearance cycle.

CGMP refers to the Current Good Manufacturing Practice regulations enforced by the US FDA. CGMPs provide for systems that assure proper design, monitoring, and control of manufacturing processes and facilities. Adherence to the cGMP regulations assures the identity, strength, quality, and purity of drug products by requiring that manufacturers of medications adequately control manufacturing operations. This includes establishing strong quality management systems, obtaining appropriate quality raw materials, establishing robust operating procedures, detecting and investigating product quality deviations, and maintaining reliable testing laboratories.

The purpose of the GxP quality guidelines is to ensure a product is safe and meets its intended use. GxP guides quality manufacture in regulated industries including food, drugs, medical devices and cosmetics.

The CGMP requirements were established to be flexible in order to allow each manufacturer to decide individually how to best implement the necessary controls by using scientifically design, processing methods, and testing procedures. The flexibility in these regulations allows companies to use modern technologies and innovative approaches to achieve higher quality through continual improvement. Accordingly, the "C" in CGMP stands for "current," requiring companies to use technologies and systems that are up-to-date in order to comply with the regulations. Systems and equipment that may have been "top-of-the-line" to prevent contamination, mix-ups, and errors 10 or 20 years ago may be less than adequate by today's quality standards.
