Often regulatory professionals are responsible for ensuring all human factors requirements for regulatory submissions are met, even though they may be unfamiliar with the subject. With increasing complexity in the global regulatory landscape and related human factors requirements, regulatory professionals need specific knowledge about human factors to prevent this key requirement from derailing regulatory submissions or causing unnecessary post-submission delays, such as additional studies or other regulatory requirements. This workshop is for the regulatory professional who wants to successfully navigate crucial aspects of human factors and prevent obstacles and risks to your submissions.
