Why do you need Regulatory Intelligence & Strategy?

As we all know, regulatory intelligence involves a complex mix of processes that go beyond compliance. It needs a deep understanding of the current regulatory landscape, the key players, the stakeholders, the history of regulatory affairs and the main market influencers.

The criticality of regulatory intelligence and strategy lies in the fact that any change brought in at any stage of the product life-cycle from research to production can have a huge impact on compliance and adaptation as per current regulatory norms (which themselves are subject to changes by global health authorities), resource allocation, budgeting and manpower, all of which reflect on the overall business and profits, and can also make any business vulnerable. Not to mention the impact on patients’ safety. Hence one needs to be proactively on the lookout for any change in the regulatory and product development cycle to prevent any losses.

Large data needs to be analysed and put into perspective against the current regulatory norms keeping patient health as the ultimate aim. The legal implications and the geographical Byelaws also need to be taken utmost care of. The sheer multitude of data and legal complications pose potential risks which need to be mitigated. Only after analysing the political, practical, legal, civil, military (if any) and commercial implications, can one come to a reasoned strategy to regulate any product in the market. A robust regulatory intelligence strategy ensures seamless integration of the product in the market. Last but not least, regulatory intelligence – conducted in the early phases of norms’ evolution – allows the pharma industry to be able to shape the legislative panorama in collaboration with institutions, payors and patients’ associations.
