How to Prepare for a Meeting with EMA and Other European Regulatory Agencies for Drugs and Biologics
Europe is an attractive market for drugs and biologics. Formal meetings with the reviewers at the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and regulators at the Notified Bodies (NB) at European nations are perhaps one of the most important and useful resource available to the sponsors of medicinal products looking to get marketing approval in the Europe. EMA and other regulatory personnel participate in hundreds of meetings each year with applicants for all kinds of applications submitted to them for review. These meetings provide an opportunity to the industry to discuss product development strategies with the regulators and clarify interpretations of the regulations. Unlike US FDA, there are very few guidance documents to help companies prepare for meetings with the EMA and NB. European processes for meeting the regulators are vastly different from those at the US FDA and any other regulatory agencies in other parts of the World. Applicants need to understand the types of meetings, scope of each meeting, process to grant or reject meetings, and alternative mechanisms to obtain feedback. Meeting with regulators are critically needed to create an acceptable development strategy, and get timely feedback from reviewers. Meeting with regulators have been demonstrated to radically reduce the overall time to market for the regulated product.
