Who we are

Latin America is still lacking regulatory harmonization that extends across its 20 member countries. There are some regional and sub-regional initiatives to promote regulatory convergence, but work is still ongoing and the stage of maturity of the regulatory system varies significantly from country to country. The region presents a challenge for global drug companies, leading to longer approval timelines and a bigger strain on resources. In order to succeed in LATAM the pharma industry must balance its global expertise and systems while addressing country specific requirements and regulatory nuances.

PharmaLex in the LATAM region operates using a mixed/combined model, with own offices in the regions most important markets, coupled/paired with a long-established partnership with an expert local service provider RAFINT (Regulatory Affairs International S.A.C.)*.  Our partnership model ensures that PharmaLex can offer the full PharmaLex portfolio of products and services and using our central corporate operating system. This safeguards PharmaLex’s high-quality standards whilst at the same time enabling us to expand our products and services into new territories across the globe.

Covering countries including: Brazil, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Argentina, Ecuador, Venezuela, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay and Central American & Caribbean countries. PharmaLex LATAM has well-established local representatives with broad experience across the region. Their local expertise enables them to successfully navigate the regulatory landscape in each country, including significant experience in meeting with the local Health Authorities, such as DIGEMID (Peru) and COFEPRIS (Mexico).
