FDA Legal Writing Skills that Result in Effective Regulatory & Quality Submissions (NTZ)
Event on 2017-08-03 09:00:00
DESCRIPTION
Law school prepares attorneys to condense complex sets of facts into concise, persuasive arguments that achieve client objectives. These writing skills are even more critical when drafting responses and applications to FDA that are predicated on arcane scientific and technical arguments. Because regulations are legally binding requirements predicated upon statutory laws and judicial opinions, it is essential that professionals in the pharmaceutical and medical device companies clearly understand and effectively employ legal writing techniques to frame persuasive argument when negotiating with FDA. The success or failure of many new drugs, biologic or medical device projects hinge on presenting essential information in a persuasive manner. Do you use these legal drafting skills when preparing quality and regulatory documents?

In this seminar, you will learn the legal writing skills and practical techniques that will enhance your chances for success even if some of your test results or other supporting information are somewhat lacking. Remember, good regulatory writing will meet FDA branch-level requirements but the best and most effective submissions can withstand scrutiny at the FDA Division level.

Why you should attend:
Most regulatory, quality and R&D professionals rise within an organization due to their scientific and technical understanding of the products in their company's pipeline. However, those professionals who can prepare written and oral arguments that effectively persuade regulatory agencies to agree with their positions are the one who achieve the highest levels of success within the organization. Lawyers know these writing techniques – do you?

Areas Covered in the Session:
Basic communications skills that all successful attorneys use to win arguments, in legal briefs and oral presentations.
Step-by-step analysis of how to present both good and poor data in a persuasive manner.
How to train scientists and engineers to generate "good" data to support legal, regulatory and quality claims?
Tips and secrets to framing an argument that makes even poor data look good.
Examples of good writing that can be useful templates for training and skills development.
What you should never say in a quality or regulatory document?

Who Will Benefit:
The seminar will be valuable to any person working in Regulatory Affairs or Quality Management who are responsible for summarizing data and technical results, obtaining regulatory clearance or approval of a product, and selling or marketing regulated products.
Regulatory Affairs professionals
Quality Assurance professionals
Marketing professionals
Scientific and Engineering / Product Development Managers
Consultants to any regulated industry
