In essence, these are the same webinars, conducted within the joint program, but organized with the support of a company-client, whose personnel constitute the core of the webinar participants. Company-client within the project implements the “open doors” principle, which allows all the pharmaceutical companies based in the Eurasian Union’s territory, to take part in the webinar on a non-reimbursable basis.

Risk-based approach in relation to investigation of deficiencies: legislative framework and regulatory expectations”, which was held on the 9th of October.
“We share and support the idea of the program’s initiators. Solidarity in the current complex situation – is crucial for the industry. Of course, we will continue to compete with each other, that’s the law of the market, and is important for upholding our vitality. However, there also common goals and tasks for the companies, and one of them – the increase of the competitiveness of our companies in the global market. The key aspect of the decision is the introduction of modern GMP standards into our practice and utilization of a risk-based approach. We welcome the opportunity to make another step in this direction together with our colleagues from the EAEU countries. We have a lot in common and it will be beneficial to exchange the expert opinion and share accumulated experience”, — explains the company’s decision on supporting the program Nativa’s Head of press section, Angelika Smieva.
