Have you ever considered a career in regulatory affairs? Do you even know what regulatory affairs is? What do we do all day long? Come and join the discussion and find out about the many opportunities in the health care industry in the regulatory affairs world!

Regulatory affairs play a vital role in any life science company to facilitate the approvals of healthcare products, including pharmaceuticals and medical devices worldwide. We must keep abreast of the ever-changing legislation and guidelines in which our company operates. We give strategic advice on the regulatory requirements in each desired market worldwide. We collect, collate and evaluate data as well create registration documents and carry out any necessary negotiations that affect a product’s market authorization. Furthermore, we review marketing concepts as well as packaging and advertising before a product goes to market.
