"Regulatory Challenges Associated with New Technology Implementation"


Offered Dec. 7, 2017

About the session

As new technology enters the animal health market, one of the biggest challenges of adaptation is achieving a registration, particularly when some features of the new technology may not clearly fit into the current regulatory processes. 

This seminar is focused on the process of achieving a positive outcome for bringing the new technologies to market and addressing some of the potential regulatory challenges. Rather than regulation being an adversary to new technology, this seminar focuses on ways to work collaboratively with the regulatory agencies to achieve success.
