We assist our clients in preparation of their dossiers to the MHRA and EMA for marketing authorisations for medicinal productsbiotechnology products and drugs. We also advise on borderline products such as cosmeticsfoods and food supplements.


We also advise and assist our clients in the preparation of their dossier and in obtaining authorisation and registration for their biocidal products under the Biocidal Regulation from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). We advise clients in relation to REACH regarding the registration, evaluation, authorisation and restriction of chemicals they are importing, supplying and/or marketing.


With regards to achieving compliance in a specific country, we work with our associates that are situated globally, to ensure compliance in that country.
