Regulatory labelling – supporting client requirements from creation to maintenance of global and local drug product labelling

Labelling regulations are essential for ensuring compliance of drug products to be used safely and efficaciously by patients. However, labelling compliance requirements can differ across regions and new regulations are regularly being introduced to update labelling documents. Prescription drug labelling includes the core safety and clinical information about a drug product, often in the form of a local regional label for example Summaries of Product Characteristics (SmPC); United States Production Information (USPI) or Product Monograph (PM); or, expressed as a global company core document such as Company Core Data Sheet (CCDS).  Guidance, mandates and recommendations are issued for each different aspect of labelling, such as clinical labelling, dosage and administration, warnings and precautions, adverse reactions and general guidance with respect to therapeutic group classes. This makes global and regional labelling management a complex and time-consuming activity for life sciences companies to ensure consistency and compliance across the concerned regions.  Our team can help ensure that the most up to date information is expressed in the labelling documentation to patients and healthcare practitioners.
