Ensure speedy regulatory approval and guarantee your filing variation procedures are cost-effective

Course Overview

Managing regulatory change for filing variations is a complex and challenging procedure. The regulatory requirements highlight the need for successful variations strategies across regulatory teams. It is therefore important for you to understand the regulations, definitions, and best practice for implementation.  
This course will teach you how to optimise your procedures for faster, streamlined and compliant variation submissions. The course contains exercises and case studies to help you understand the variation requirements and meet your regulatory goals. You will examine the various types of variations from mutual recognition to type II and centralised procedure variations. You will also discuss how best to approach grouping and worksharing so you know when to apply it to your variations.
