Borderline Products

These days, an increasing number of products must be characterized as borderline, an ambiguity that exists due to either innovative products that don’t fall under prospective regulations or overlaps in existing regulations.

Our services in this field include:

  • Demarcation and identification of appropriate regulatory paths with applicable legislation
  • Development of optimized regulatory strategies aimed to achieve marketability
  • Intermediation and close interaction with competent authorities, notified bodies, and other regulatory bodies in order to safeguard chosen strategies

Our fields of expertise are

  • Medicinal products
  • Medical devices
  • Cosmetics
  • Food and food supplements
  • Dietary foods
  • Foods for special medical purposes
  • Any relevant borderline areas in between

Small Medium Enterprises - SMEs

EMA

The EU recognizes the key role that micro, small, and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) play in innovating new medicines, and the benefits they provide for patients. At the same time, it acknowledges that SMEs don't have the same resources as larger companies. To mitigate this issue, the EU introduced financial and administrative help for SMEs in 2005.

We can assist companies who wish to achieve SME status and access its available incentives.

FDA

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is a large, complex organization that requires a solid grasp of which processes are relevant for which projects, and therefore requires very specific expertise for each separate product category.

In the US, we have access to experts who are competent in:

  • Representing international companies as the designated US agent
  • Liaising with the FDA to resolve issues and expedite market approvals
  • Preparing and submitting drug establishment registrations/renewals and drug product listings
  • Managing and inputting study information into the FDA database of investigational protocols for the treatment of serious and life-threatening diseases
