Nov 8, 2017
Order the recording of this seminar

Course Description

The Regulatory Affairs department must prepare documents that inform European Regulatory Agencies about the proposed development plan; submit a Clinical Trial Authorization (CTA) to initiate human clinical trials; answer questions about on-going investigations; and construct and submit any updates to the CTA in a concise and informative manner. Regulatory submissions are more than just writing – they encompass strategy, research, writing, organizing and leading a team, compiling, editing, publishing, and tracking of the information. When initiating a global clinical trial program, many moving parts need to be brought into harmony to ensure compliance and that timelines are met. Web seminar attendees will walk away with tools to help plan, write, and manage multiple CTAs with all their differing requirements.
