TTO Workshop Regulatory Affairs

TTO Workshop Regulatory Affairs

New medicines and medical devices must be authorised before they can be marketed and made available to patients. In the European Union, the route for authorising medicines starts at the European Medicines Agency (EMA), which evaluates and authorises new medicines. The ‘College ter Beoordeling van Geneesmiddelen (CBG)’ is responsible for giving approval for the Dutch market. In addition you need approval from the ´Central Committee on Research Involving Human Subjects’ (CCMO) to start clinical research.

During this workshop representatives from the EMA, CBG and CCMO give insights in how and when to initiate contacts with them during pre-authorisation and authorisation settings. They will also explain how the regulatory agencies support young companies in their product development process. This workshop is meant for business developers working at Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) in universities and medical centres. The topic will be addressed for medical devices, diagnostics and (bio) pharmaceuticals.
