This training course will provide an excellent introduction to the European Regulatory Procedures for personnel in regulatory
affairs, clinical research, project management and other disciplines involved in the development of medicinal products.
The course will cover the evolution of the Registration Systems available for approval of products since January 1995 in the European Union, together with major changes in New Medicines Legislation. Title IV of Regulation EC726/2004 on the European Medicines Agency -Responsibilities and Administrative Structure, came into effect on May 20, 2004. The remainder of the Regulation and all of Directive 2004/27/EC became effective in November 20, 2005.

The very important changes in New Medicine Legislation concerning regulatory procedures, access to Centralised and Mutual Recognition Procedures, reduction in Regulatory Data protection will be described in detail.

Detailed review will be offered on the changed Centralised and Mutual Recognition Procedures and New Decentralised Procedure with discussion of practical examples of product types suitable for each procedure.

Other issues that impact on successful regulatory strategy in Europe, Harmonisation of Summary of Product Characteristics, Article 30 and Article 31 referrals and Supplementary Protection Certificate for Patents will be described.

Also reviewed and discussed is the legal status of medicinal products and the procedure for switching from prescription only sale to OTC sale, legislation controlling Medical Devices and the Clinical Trial Directive.
