Regulatory Certification of Pharmaceutical Products

Administrative documents are an integral component of regulatory submissions and constitute key certifications. These can include Letter of Authorization (LOA) Certificate of Pharmaceutical Product (CPP), Certificate of Suitability (CEP), Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) etc. Regulatory services agencies require manufacturers to have these certificates notarized, apostille, and legalized if they wish to enter a new market which guarantees the authenticity and ultimately the quality of the product to expedite market access.

Legalization practices vary across different regions; certain agencies may require document submission to be done online while others require in-person submission. Similarly, depending on the country, a certificate need not be legalized if it has been notarized and apostille. Navigating through such requirements for certificate verification can be challenging for manufacturers that wish to penetrate an unfamiliar market or region.

DDReg’s local representatives liaise with the appropriate Embassy and Chamber of Commerce to get administrative certificates notarized, apostilled, and legalized for timely submission of dossiers.

Basics of notarization, apostille, and legalization.

Notarization, apostille, and legalization are processes through which administrative documents and certificates are authenticated in order to support regulatory submissions. They differ in scope and purpose, so it is critical to understand the distinctions in order to support the international acceptance of critical documents. Different regulatory authorities may have different requirements with respect to notarization, apostille, and legalization of respective documents & certificates. Harmonizing these processes facilitates the smooth submission and acceptance of regulatory documents. Notarization of certificates is common for national documents but may not be sufficient for international use; apostille of a certificate or document simplifies its acceptance across Member countries reducing the need for further legalization. Legalization of certificates and documents involves the authentication by multiple authorities and is necessary for those countries not recognizing the apostille.
