Pharma regulatory services

Complete support for the integration of primary pharmaceutical packaging content into drug and medical device registrations

Supporting seamless integration into pharma registrations

Regulatory services help drug product or medical device owners make information about containment systems available for registration. SCHOTT Pharma ensures the global regulatory availability of its containment solutions in compliance with evolving international norms and standards, as well as country-specific laws and guidelines. Different countries follow different registration processes:

  • In countries following Drug Master File (DMF) or national product registration approaches, pharmaceutical packaging is registered separately from the drug product or medical device by SCHOTT Pharma.

  • In many other regions, such as the EU, South America, and Australia, the pharmaceutical packaging documentation must be submitted by the drug product or medical device owner as part of the application dossier.
