Preparing for a Successful Approval Process and Safety Planning

The first hurdle to overcome is to build the marketing application timeline.  We always advise that you start with the submission date and work the timeline backwards.  Ensure that you’ve included enough time for publication processes, changes based on agency meetings, and any downstream effects of potential revision requests. And don’t forget post-marketing updates, annual reports, and safety surveillance requirements.   

In an ideal world, the timeline would be linear, as illustrated below, but the reality is that many of these items happen in parallel.
