EU Regulatory


We routinely translate European Medicines Agency (EMA) Marketing Authorisation Applications (MAAs) using QRD (Quality Review of Documents) templates for both human and veterinary medicinal products.

We have extensive experience in the translation of Product Information required by the EMA as part of their procedures for MAAs and Variations.

Ever since the Marketing Authorisation was introduced to Europe through the First Pharmaceutical Directive in 1965, DWL has translated product information for many of the world’s most important drugs.

Later, DWL supported the European pharmaceutical industry in tackling the linguistic and regulatory impact of the accession of new Member States, the advent of the Mutual Recognition Procedure and later the Decentralised Procedure.

Today we translate all necessary regulatory documentation relating to clinical, non-clinical and product information for the Common Technical Document (CTD) and all post-marketing authorisation variations, pharmacovigilance and pharmaco-economic documentation.

Through our association with The Organisation for Professionals in Regulatory Affairs (TOPRA), Clinical and Contract Research Association (CCRA) as well as regular attendance at regulatory events and seminars we stay ahead of an ever-changing regulatory landscape.
