regulanet® is a group of highly skilled, experienced, like minded individuals and their companies, who have come together to offer a complete healthcare development service. Together, we form a network with representation in over 90 countries throughout the world. The services we offer span all aspects of product development, from brand and company strategy, product formulation and development, packaging development and implementation, extensive clinical, medical and regulatory expertise coupled with technology sourcing, product licensing and world class project management capabilities.
Founded in 2001 by Dr. Regenold GmbH, regulanet® offers services to a wide variety of national and international healthcare and pharmaceutical clients. The members of the network provide advice and assistance on national and international projects and marketing authorisation procedures, including the decentralised, mutual recognition and centralised procedures within Europe.
Our clients can utilise all of the resources that regulanet® can offer, or just access a specific part of our capabilities. Whatever your requirements, a project leader will provide a single point of contact and coordinate all project activity across the network.
Over the years the services offered by members have been expanded and now include all aspects of development, regulatory and market access in their respective countries.
