DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb 4, 2020--

The “Regulatory Affairs for Support Staff” conference has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

This two-day course provides an introduction to pharmaceutical regulatory affairs and the basics of drug development and has been designed specifically for those working in a support staff role.

Working in pharmaceutical regulatory affairs is a complex role, with involvement in not only the drug development stages but also post drug-approval activities and marketing.

This interactive course, designed specifically for those working in a support staff role, provides a valuable introduction to pharmaceutical regulatory affairs and key responsibilities.

Participants will gain an overview of the EU regulatory procedures required to register products in Europe and the regulatory activities that need to be complied with to keep products on the market.

The programme will cover pharmacovigilance and safety reporting with sessions on licence variations, the commercial aspects of pharmaceutical products and the potential impact of Brexit. The course will provide a thorough grounding in the subject of regulatory affairs and enable support staff to perform more effectively.

Discussion sessions and the use of case studies throughout the two days will help consolidate learning.
