Regulatory affairs, pharmacovigilance and market access services in Estonia

With a team of professional, experienced locally based consultants, Grove is a highly-respected provider of pharmaceutical consulting in Estonia, including but not limited to regulatory affairs, pharmacovigilance and market access consulting services.

The Estonian State Agency of Medicines (SAM) has worked hard to improve transparency and ease of access for new entrants to the Estonian healthcare market. Electronic data exchange is widespread and harmonization with EU legislation increasingly common. The small size of both the market and the regulatory authorities involved aids the speed of implementation of any regulatory change.

That said, the reimbursement process in particular remains slow and complex and there are local pharmacovigilance requirements that must be met over and above those dictated by EU legislation. Understanding the regulatory affairs and local pharmacovigilance processes is vital if new market entrants are to optimize their pricing and reimbursement submissions in the country and develop an appropriate pharmacovigilance response. Access to a local regulatory partner and to local pharmacovigilance services is an essential pre-requisite to executing successful market entry and development.
