Regulatory CMC

Science-Based | Risk-Based | Strategic/Tactical | Customized

The continuously evolving CMC regulatory landscape presents a steady challenge to the development of new drugs, therapies, and devices. For example, regulator’s expectations to adopt new paradigms of drug development (e.g. QbD/PAT) and increased testing and controls can add major CMC challenges in the current climate of globalized and outsourced R&D and manufacturing settings. The opportunity for expedited regulatory pathways poses additional CMC challenges for the timely development of a commercial-ready process.

These scenarios are further confounded by the lack of harmonized global regulations. At Syner-G, we have extensive experience in navigating this landscape and are passionate in helping our clients in the design, planning, and execution of CMC strategies that are critical for the successful development and timely approval of new drugs.

Our Regulatory Solutions

Typically, regulatory activities follow the 80:20 rule, i.e. 80% are tactical and 20% are strategic. Syner-G offers both strategic and tactical CMC solutions. Strategic CMC regulatory solutions are designed on a case-by-case basis by evaluating the scientific and technical situation and challenges, whereas tactical solutions are primarily geared towards the execution of the strategy.
