Our Technical Operations practice spans Regulatory Affairs, Quality Assurance and Pharmacovigilance.
Each discipline plays a critical role in the safe and effective delivery of medicines to patients, with Regulatory Affairs playing a central role as the interface between the health agencies and various functions within the business. Expertise in the regulatory environment, combined with a strategic overview and the ability to work cross-functionally, makes professionals in this discipline highly sought after. Quality Assurance ensures health providers can be confident that every unit provided reaches the required quality standards and is compliant with all the regulatory standards. Constant monitoring through Pharmacovigilance maintains that confidence over time with constant monitoring used to prevent Adverse Drug Reactions.
