Our services

Our team advises major pharmaceutical manufacturers on various regulatory matters relating to the placing of the market of pharmaceutical ingredients under the EU legal framework for human medicines.

We advise manufacturers and retailers of medical devices on the Medical Device Regulation and In Vitro Diagnostic Medical Device Regulation, including scope assessment, monitoring of implementation measures and anticipation of and assistance with compliance of client products and procedures.

Our combined expertise in chemicals, life sciences and food enables us to successfully assist clients with a variety of regulatory issues concerning the identity of so-called ‘borderline products’ at the intersection of distinct pieces of EU legislation, and the correct identification of the regulatory regime under which they belong in order to avoid double or inaccurate regulation of products.

This includes the interplay between medicinal products, medical devices, biocides, cosmetics, detergents, food and food additives.
