International Drug & Device Recalls

Like it or not — despite the complicated process you have to go through to receive regulatory approval — product recalls are a reality, in the U.S. and in every other country where your product is sold.

Recalls continue to dominate headlines year after year. While there is a push for countries to harmonize their standards, this is one area where there are still dramatic disparities between regulatory agencies.

Those unprepared will see millions siphoned from their bottom lines — spent on everything from damage control advertisements to public relations experts — with countless man-hours wasted on spin control instead of new product development.
