This session covers the various licensing methods (for Drugs, Biologics & Combination Products) by which applicants can file for product licenses (Marketing Authorizations) in one or multiple Member States, as well as fully across all Member States of the European Union. This course specifically outlines and discusses the structure of the regulatory agencies at the EU-level and across specific Member States. Course content will explain which procedures are available for which products and then will follow the license processing steps for each pathway. 

Product examples will be discussed to illustrate effective filing techniques and when Full vs. Abridged applications will be required. The Course will link the requirements of the EU Clinical Trial Directive and discuss when existing clinical data might be sufficient to file. Related ICH compliant requirements such as GCP and GMP will enter the licensing approval process. Common issues that have caused difficulties for pharmaceutical firms will be discussed. Course content will explain how the EU interacts with national regulatory agencies and how companies can best address the conflicts that sometimes arise.
