Post-Approval Changes Submissions

Banner with Title


To enhance productivity and to optimise the operational cost, medicinal product manufacturers propose certain changes to the registered content of the medicinal product applications/dossiers. Any change to the registered content of medicinal products should be submitted to the respective Health Authority (HA) in the appropriate submission procedure with supporting data prior to its implementation. Based on the impact of the change, the requirement of prior approval would be determined referring to the CMC post-approval Regulatory affairs submissions (post-approval supplements/amendments/CMC variations) guidelines of the respective HAs. In this phase, the importance of the Regulatory strategy for post-approval Regulatory affairs changes submission is significant.

Freyr’s CMC Regulatory affairs team has experience and expertise in handling the following post-approval Regulatory affairs changes with submissions to the respective HAs based on country-specific requirements.
