Regulatory assessment/Gap analysis of the supporting documents/data is critical for the registration of medicinal products. Though most of the Health Authorities (HAs) accept applications/dossiers in the CTD format, the level of content to be provided in the CTD section vary from each other. Thus, a thorough gap analysis/technical assessment of the documents/data enables the manufacturers to identify and mitigate the gaps before Regulatory submission. It will avoid Regulatory rejections of the submissions and minimize any major/critical queries to fasten the approvals.
Gap analysis of the legacy dossiers against current practices followed for the manufacture of the medicinal products will ensure the Regulatory compliance of the product. The identified gaps can be mitigated by the submission of the probable supplements/variations to avoid the non-compliant Regulatory practices. Freyr, as a proven Regulatory service provider with experienced Regulatory affairs CMC resources, provides gap analysis support.
