Product Safety and Drug Development

Regulatory compliance and product defense

When golf champions win, it’s often in the spotlight, watched carefully by competitors, fans, and television audiences potentially totaling millions of people. The stress is extraordinary. Likewise, pharmaceutical, biotech, and medical device companies are closely scrutinized by regulators, investors, the medical community, patients, and the public. These businesses have the potential to change lives, but do so under extraordinary pressure.

Performance under pressure

Deloitte works with life sciences companies to develop practical, executable strategies for addressing critical issues such as pharmacovigilance (PV) execution and drug safety compliance, document management, adverse events processing, and product safety monitoring. Our practitioners have significant experience across a broad cross-section of life sciences organizations addressing PV. Deloitte is recognized as world class and a thought leader in the life sciences industry.
