Regulations in the US and EU Dealing with Combination Products

Regulations in the US and EU Dealing with Combination Products.jpg

Registering and maintaining combination products in the US and the EU is a bit tricky, because these are disparate markets that are governed by different sets of regulations which are independent of each other. So, any business that wants to market combination products into the US or the EU must be completely aware of the nature and meaning of all the regulations. Such businesses need to understand the nuances of the regulatory expectations and do what it takes to meet these.

Professionals and organizations that work in these areas must familiarize themselves with the existing regulations and their latest updates. This is the foundation to ensuring that their products comply with regulatory requirements and meet quality standards, which ensures that the consumer consumes products that are of the set scientific standards.

The regulations in the two markets have evolved differently. The fact that the regulatory agencies in the two markets, namely the US FDA and the European Medicines Agency (EMA) work to ensure the quality of drugs and thus the wellbeing of their consumers is the commonality between the two.

While the US FDA is a centralized agency that regulates food and medicinal products across the vast US market; the EMA, synchronizes the regulations of the 28 countries that are members of the European Union. While the FDA was primarily created to be a consumer protection agency; the regulations from the EMA came about to harmonize the commercial and technological interests of the Member States.

The EU’s new update

In September 2016, the EU, through its two major legislative organs -the European Commission and the European Council, reached a compromise on a major area concerning combination products. Reached four years after a deal was made; the compromise relates to medical devices and invitro diagnostic (IVD) devices.

High risk combination devices, such as implants, will from now be assessed and authorized by the EMA. Brought in to replace the existing EU legislation on medical devices and in-vitro diagnostics; the new regulation seeks to make these products more consistent and uniform in terms of their assessment and approval process across the EU.

Thorough and sound learning of the US and EU regulations on combination products

This is the case of just one regulation in the EU concerning combination products. When the regulations and their updates from both the US and the EU are taken together, a regulatory professional or anyone in manufacturing is up against a mountain. It is to help gain clarity on this wide array of topics that GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading provider of professional trainings for the areas of regulatory compliance, will be organizing a two-day seminar.

This seminar, which is aimed at giving professionals who work in areas concerning regulation in the combination products area, will have Salma Michor, founder and CEO of Michor Consulting Schweiz GmbH, as the Director.

Please visit Regulations in the US and EU Dealing with Combination Products to register for this seminar. This seminar has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant’s RAC recertification upon full completion.
