Sponsored Webcast: How to Effectively Talk to Regulators

25 October 2017
12:00–1:30pm EDT

Sponsored by:

A communication with a government agency is the wrong time for an original thought!

Often, industry finds itself in an antagonistic situation with government agencies or its regulators. There could be an emerging safety issue, concerns about packaging, or supply chain challenges. Whatever the issue, all too frequently, industry either ignores the problem until regulators have to act unilaterally, or they mount a fight with regulators. Effective communications should be a win for both parties.

During this dynamic webcast, you will hear the dos and don’ts of communicating with a regulator, including examples of industry effectively working with FDA. Gain insights into how regulators think, what they value, and what experts they most want to hear. Learn to speak their language!
