RAPS Boston Chapter: Understanding Language Compliance for Global Markets

Join colleagues from your local regulatory community for an evening of networking and to hear an expert presentation on the importance of language compliance when registering products across global markets.

Regulatory affairs professionals must understand language compliance to guide their company’s global product registrations and enable a successful market entry. Established and emerging regional regulatory frameworks continually evolve and often impose language requirements that can leave room for interpretation. This challenge, if not addressed beforehand, can cause delays during product registration and impact the success of product launches.

Join others from your local regulatory community to explore the insights and experiences from the perspective of a Language Service Provider (LSP) working with regulatory teams in the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. Learn more about language compliance and answers to the most common questions that regulatory professionals face.

At the conclusion of the presentation, you will have a better understanding of:

  • What language compliance encompasses
  • How to ensure language compliance for different audiences (regulatory authority vs. product end user)
  • What to anticipate for regional markets with multiple languages

This event is coordinated by the RAPS Boston Chapter and is intended to encourage knowledge sharing and community development. Dinner will be provided. RAC holders may claim two RAC recertification credits.
