Benefits of Pharma Consulting

NSF’s team of consultants can offer services specific to your needs, including:

Compliance consulting: An in-depth audit of your operations, or those of a third party, to assess current levels of compliance with international GxP regulations and expectations.

Regulatory consulting: Target product profile, regulatory strategy, orphan drugs and unique and combination products (due diligence, regulatory pathways).

Mock regulatory inspections: We help you prepare for a regulatory inspection by carrying out mock regulatory audits in advance of the real thing. Consultants visit your facility and carry out an inspection in the style of the relevant regulatory body (FDA, MHRA, EMEA, etc.).

Due diligence audits: We assist pharmaceutical companies, investment banks and venture capital organizations in the process of due diligence for potential acquisitions, buy-ins, joint ventures and other investment projects.

Benchmarking audits: We assess your facilities, procedures and practices against current industry norms, based on our exposure to pharmaceutical companies, large and small, worldwide.

Why Work With NSF?

When you are very close to a problem it can become difficult to solve. At NSF, our pharma consulting team has extensive expertise in helping companies to systematically resolve problems associated with their products, processes, equipment and systems.

Many of our in-house experts formerly worked as regulatory inspectors and senior corporate compliance auditors with major multinational pharmaceutical companies. Rather than simply telling you where you fail to comply, the NSF team provides essential, pragmatic advice on how to achieve compliance in a cost-effective way. We work with you to ensure that remedial action plans are comprehensive, effectively implemented and, where appropriate, fully documented.
