Regulatory Landscape – Latin America

Here are three important points to note.

  • First of all, LATAM region does not have a centralized or harmonized procedure for drug registration. Hence, regulatory professionals need to learn each and every country regulation separately.
  • However, adoption or adaptation of guidelines from ICH countries have helped to harmonize the requirements for the development and approval of new medicines.
  • Thirdly, LATAM countries have been aligning regionally and reinforcing harmonization, through initiatives of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) via the Pan American Network for Drug Regulatory Harmonization (PANDRH).

Supranational key regulating bodies in Latin America

  • PAHO/OPS – Pan American Health Organization.
  • PANDRH/Red PARF – Pan American Network for Drug Regulatory Harmonization.
  • WHO/OMS – World Health Organization.
  • ICH – International Council for Harmonization of Technical Requirements for Pharmaceuticals for Human Use, Global Cooperation Groups.
