The MHRA is launching an ‘Innovation Office’ to help organisations who are developing innovative medicines, medical devices or using novel manufacturing processes to navigate the regulatory processes in order to be able to progress their products or technologies.
The main aim of the ‘Innovation Office’ will be to promote early dialogue between innovative organisations and the MHRA to help facilitate their understanding of the regulatory considerations applicable to their innovation. For example the MHRA can advise on the development of innovative products like advanced therapies, nanomedicines and drug device combinations.
The ‘office’ will be a web-based portal accessed via the MHRA website. Developers of such technologies will be able to fill in a simple form which will be submitted confidentially to the most appropriate person at the MHRA.
