Access Consortium offers pipeline meetings to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies

The Access Consortium is offering joint pipeline meetings to pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies.

Pipeline meetings between our regulatory authorities and pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are an opportunity to exchange information on new developments and collaborate on new possibilities.

The meetings will also help Access regulators plan and prepare for future work-share applications.

Information discussed in these meetings will remain confidential.

Stakeholders must submit a request for a pipeline meeting.

  • Topics for discussion at these meetings may include:
    • potential candidates for Access submissions, such as:
      • biosimilars
      • advanced therapy medicinal products
      • generic developments for complex technologies
      • new active substance candidates for standard or priority review
    • requirements for future submissions involving upcoming trends, new technologies and added complexities
      • for example, real world evidence, complex trials
    • collective indications
      • for example, tropical diseases
    • early identification of challenges or possible technical barriers for harmonized submissions
    • submission strategy for novel therapeutic approaches

As the Heads of the Access Consortium, we are committed to working with our applicants to facilitate further access to safe, effective and high-quality medicines for patients.
