Regulatory Strategy for Registering Rare Disease Products in the EU

Webinar Replay

In this webinar we focus on how to benefit, today and in the future, from the Orphan Drug program and build a regulatory strategy for successful rare disease product registration in the EU market.

According to European Medicines Agency about 30 million people living in the EU suffer from a rare disease. The Orphan Drug Regulation 141/2000 is a key European regulation that governs the research, development, and bringing to market of appropriate medications so that patients suffering from rare diseases can have the same quality of treatment as other patients.

In 2021, the European Commission proposed amendments to the Orphan Drug legislation that are still under discussion. What will the results of this review mean for companies looking to register their rare disease product in the EU market?

In this webinar you will learn:
What is the current orphan drug regulation
Why and how to get an Orphan Drug Designation
How the regulatory changes may impact orphan drug developers
