IWA Consulting – 20 years with Regulatory Affairs Consultancy
20 years have passed and much has happened since we began our journey up the ladder. It all started in 1997 being a one-man company, and have now grown to be 20 fantastic employees, always ready to take on any challenge with new clients and tasks. Looking back, our journey is full of fun and memories, but what is more important is looking forward at the next years to come. It’s important for us to keep growing and expanding our fields of expertise; latest we have expanded with a team of Medical Device RA specialists. We believe that the opening of our office at COBIS will bring us closer to the start-up community and will strengthen our competitiveness and help innovate our services to best fit our clients’ needs and regulators’ demands. No task is the same and all have been challenging at different levels and all have added new expertise and experience to our competencies. Thank you to everyone having been part of our journey! We’re looking forward to keep cooperating and welcoming new clients and projects.

Centralized Procedures Ahead for CTAs
The Medicon Valley Yearbook 2017 has just been published and our partner Lillan Rejkjær shares how the future of eCTD will embed all RA activities including Policy 0070 and marketing material.
The eCTDs is here to stay and can optimize the process of filing for a marketing authorization with both the EMA and the FDA, simultaneously.
“Integration of eCTDs is not easy at all, but I assure that it is a whole lot easier – and quicker – if the eCTD mindset is introduced upfront instead of when the regulatory people is compiling the marketing authorization application.” says Lillan Rejkjær.
