a timely webinar on the subject of multi-region submissions management, to be broadcast on July 28th

- To be broadcast later this month, the session will explore the options available to multinational pharmaceutical companies to overcome the cultural, economic and regulatory differences when launching new drugs in multiple countries -

Eschborn, Germany – July 20th, 2009 – Image Solutions Inc. (ISI), a leading provider of electronic submissions management and publishing solutions for the life sciences community, has announced a timely webinar on the subject of multi-region submissions management, to be broadcast on July 28th.

The session, Collaborating with Local Operating Companies on Multi-Region Submissions, will acknowledge and address the cultural, economic and regulatory differences between countries, which can prove so daunting when launching new drugs. Recognising that the challenge is particularly pronounced in the lengthy regulatory submissions phase, with each country or region guided by differing processes, formats and requirements, the webinar will outline optimum strategies and solutions for overcoming these complexities. Suggested approaches include developing a centralised strategy which harnesses the unique local knowledge of local operating companies (LOCs), while overcoming local technology differences.

Title: Collaborating with Local Operating Companies on Multi-Regional Submissions
When: Tuesday, July 28, 2009|10:00 am EDT / 3:00 pm BST / 4:00 pm CEST

Webinar content
As the market moves towards global regulatory harmonisation in developing and launching new drugs, HQ operations are rethinking their relationship with LOCs. To help sort through the models, a regulatory expert from ISI, and guest presenters from customer GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), will outline the best practices in HQ-LOC multi-market submissions.

The webinar will provide both the HQ and LOC perspectives, to provide a deeper understanding of:
• How the relationship between HQ and LOCs has changed in the current business climate, and why LOCs are more important than ever in global regulatory filings
• What LOCs need and want from HQ in terms of tools, platforms and resources to bring local submissions activities in line with national electronic submission requirements


• Facilitator: Cindy van Dijk, President, van Dijk Scientific Communications
• ISI Presenter: Kate Wilber, Director Regulatory Services, ISI Europe
• Guest Speaker: Alastair J. Nixon, Site Director of Publishing, GlaxoSmithKline
