The regulatory environment for the pharmaceutical industry is constantly changing with increasing demand for pre- and post-approval activities. The maintenance of approved products might often not be the key strategic focus of companies, however is essential and critically important for product compliance.

As a result, regulatory outsourcing of maintenance activities has become a new trend in the pharmaceutical industry, enabling companies to focus their resources on core strategic competencies, while reducing complexity and moving to more scalable and flexible resource models. Outsourcing models range from tactical outsourcing of single tasks or functional activities to preferred provider models and ultimately strategic partnership. The latter normally comprises large volume, long-term outsourcing programs, managing full global regulatory responsibility for parts of the product portfolio (typically > 40 product brands). All regulatory activities are handled by PharmaLex on a global level for countries worldwide, with interfaces to different customer functions such as local affiliates, manufacturing sites and PV.
