Regulatory Management

Our Regulatory Affairs Department has expertise in a wide array of regulatory domains relevant to the life sciences industry. They routinely interact with regulatory organizations and authorities throughout the world and ensure Avantor has the right to conduct business involving regulated products, thereby supporting a reliable supply chain that can be trusted by our customers and others. 

We serve industries subject to rigorous quality, performance and reliability regulations. Product quality is assured by our quality systems, beginning with an effective design protocol and continuing up the supply chain, from vendor qualification through product distribution.

We have filed and maintain over 800 master access files (“MAF”) and drug master files (“DMF”) that are registered with regulatory authorities globally— helping to simplify medical and pharmaceutical product approval processes by allowing manufacturers to reference our products as part of their own applications.
