January 10, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm EST

Whether your company is located in the U.S. or the E.U., you need to be aware of regulations on “the other” side of the ocean in today’s global market. This is especially true for homeopathic drugs, the starting materials for many of which are available only from one continent or the other.
How do the regulations within the supplier’s country impact your ability to import those starting materials? What are the ramifications of the end marketer’s national requirements on the export of homeopathic starting materials?
Attend this important and timely webinar to:
- Receive an overview of the regulatory frameworks for homeopathic drugs in the U.S. and E.U.;
- Understand the fundamental differences between the U.S. and E.U. regulatory requirements; and
- Gain insights into what you need to know for importing and exporting homeopathic drugs between the U.S. and E.U.
This one-hour webinar will introduce your company to the myriad aspects every company needs to consider in today’s international marketplace. Presented by two established experts in the field, this webinar will provide companies with the framework to understand the differences and comparisons between the U.S. and E.U. regulatory requirements, as well as the impact of “the other” on your company’s suppliers and markets. The webinar will also provide an awareness of the differences between the various national pharmacopeias and why an ignorance of “the other” can lead to your products being deemed as misbranded or adulterated.
