Regulatory Affairs

Our Regulatory Affairs team makes sure our products are approved for sale by the relevant regulatory authorities around the world and comply with the highest quality standards. Centrient Pharmaceuticals has been granted more than 500 marketing authorisations in multiple countries in Europe and beyond, based on Centrient's finished dosage form registration dossiers presented in the Common Technical Document (CTD) format. Moreover, we own more than 100 active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) dossiers for global registrations – for example, Drug Master Files (DMF) and Certificate of Suitability (CEP) dossiers – to enable our partners and customers to market the finished dosage forms we make and supply globally.

More widely, the team plays an important role in helping to maintain and improve the quality of medicines worldwide by donating reference standards for APIs and impurities to the world’s two leading pharmacopoeias, the European Pharmacopoeia and the United States Pharmacopeia, and being part of an expert group involved in formulating antibiotic monographs for the European Pharmacopoeia.

As a member of the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC), we also provide our views regarding new and updated regulations and guidelines via the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients Committee, a sector-wide group overseen by the Council.
