How can I optimise submissions for a MD that I want to market in different countries?
Challenges of a structured regulatory strategy
The goal, after having clearly defined the classification of your device by country, is to determine strategically the common requirements between the target countries. An action plan should be set up to identify the priorities for submitting files to the competent authorities. There is always a best route or routes to determine the order of submissions.
Establishment of a regulatory strategy is recommended as soon as the feasibility study phase. It allows you to optimise time to market, obtain a global regulatory vision to find out the best possible obstacles and roads, and reveal ambiguities between marketing countries.
