Regulatory Intelligence 101

Please check back later for this seminar's current schedule, or review our other live seminars for similar courses.

Course Description 

The regulatory environment is constantly shifting and changing.  This dynamism necessitates keeping abreast of current information from a variety of sources.  Regulatory Intelligence (RI) is the act of gathering and analyzing regulatory information for impact or changes in laws, regulations, directives, guidance documents, etc.  There is more to regulatory intelligence than keeping up with the latest regulations and guidelines. Regulatory precedence, industry practices, regulatory agency opinions, competitor information are just a few of the valuable sources of information that can help regulatory affairs professionals to develop successful regulatory strategies.  

The monitoring and gathering of RI will ultimately culminate in developing a regulatory strategy which can result in decreased time to approval; potentially decreased cost of product development through strategizing risk based on current information; and maximization of target market(s).  

In addition, as more companies are conducting trials and filing marketing application worldwide, the need to keep abreast of worldwide regulatory information is increasing in importance as a change in the global landscape can affect the global regulatory strategy.  RI allows a regulatory professional to determine requirements for conducting global clinical trials, manufacturing requirements, advise personnel, answer strategic regulatory questions and write or construct a global marketing application.  

This class examines the scope of regulatory intelligence which encompasses: Information sources, monitoring the regulatory landscape (periodic versus ongoing), using an RI database and other sources to research the regulatory question, how to summarize, analyze, integrate and present RI, as well as discuss implementation choices-in-house, consultants, information services, or a mixture-and the advantages/disadvantages of each choice. 

Hands-on class exercises help participants gain experience using a regulatory intelligence database to search and summarize regulatory intelligence information.
