Global Dossier Management implicates tasks that are driven under strict timelines coupled with high-level coordination across local markets to help companies expand their prospects in targeted geographies. If it is to be dealt in the case of pharmaceutical imports and exports to UAE and MENA region, handling huge volumes of dossiers pertaining to registration, licensing, renewal and baseline submissions pose a real-time challenge for companies during compilation and managing affecting the approval time and market entry.

At the same time, approved products constantly undergo changes pertaining to chemical composition, manufacturing process, transfer of manufacturing sites, labels, shelf-life extensions etc. While seeking import, export and distribution licenses or certificates in the MENA region, many of those findings must be reported to Ministry of Health or geo-specific health authorities. Here comes the need of exclusive lifecycle management (LCM) services.
