Legal Writing Skills to Prepare for Effective Regulatory Submissions - FDA, EU EMEA and EU Notified Body
Wednesday, January 29, 2014 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PST)
This training on legal writing for regulatory submissions will provide practical tips that have proven to enhance the persuasiveness of regulatory submissions and help you succeed even if some of your test results or other supporting information are lacking.
Why Should You Attend:
Attorneys learn how to present information in a manner most beneficial to their clients. Regulatory attorneys use these same skills to enhance the persuasiveness of submissions destined to regulatory authorities in the U.S. and worldwide. The success or failure of many new drugs, biologic or medical device projects hinges on presenting essential information in a manner that is most persuasive to a regulatory reviewer. Do you use these skills when drafting quality and regulatory documents?
As every Product Development Manager knows, even the best programs are hampered by deficiencies or gaps in data that exist at the time of reporting or submitting data to an Agency (e.g., FDA, EU EMEA, EU Notified Body). The key skill is knowing how to present required information in a way that will increase, not jeopardize the likelihood of timely project success. Fortunately there is an array of proven legal and technical writing techniques and strategies exist to help guide you and the team to success. Do you know them?
In this webinar, you will learn the writing skills that will enhance your chances for success even if some of your test results or other supporting information are somewhat lacking. The quality and regulatory professional must know how to structure a written argument that highlight “good” data while also diminishing the negative impact due to data gaps or deficiencies.
